Ju Hong came from South Korea to the United States when he was 11 years old. Ju attended Laney College in Oakland, where he was elected as the first Asian American undocumented student body president. He graduated from Laney College with a 3.8 GPA and transferred to University of California, Berkeley.
Last summer, Ju conducted an act of civil disobedience along with other undocumented students to empower young undocumented immigrant youth and to protest the inhumane treatment of immigrants. This marks the first time undocumented youth participated in nonviolent civil disobedience in California.
Recently, he graduated from UC Berkeley where he studied Political Science and served as a student government Senator. Ultimately, he hopes to go to law school and become an immigration attorney to protect and serve immigrant communities at large.
