Point Scholar 2007 – 2008
Andrew graduated from Harvard with an undergraduate degree in Economics, and was fortunate enough to receive a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University in England where he focused his Masters and Doctoral studies on the issue of same-sex marriage. He has continued his interest in LGBT rights and relationship recognition at the Yale Law School where he was a Soros Fellow. He also worked at the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit as a Law Clerk for the Honorable Judge Robert A. Katzmann.
Andrew hopes to continue his work in the intersection of law, and expand into policy, politics and media. A strong believer in openness as an engine for social change, Andrew hopes to draw attention to positive contributions that LGBT people make in society by being visible and honest in his own professional capacity. In so doing, he hopes to also become a role model for the Korean and Asian American communities, both of which continue to lack visible LGBT figures.
