ILLINI LIFE

 
2008 psychology alumni and children
 

THE NEXT CHAPTER—Psychology alumni Hye Yoon Choi, Hyemin Lee, So Jung Lee, and Yoojin Park spent most of their four years at U of I together as they each earned bachelor’s degrees in psychology in 2008. Now the friends are living back in South Korea, and they have something else in common—children. Recently the mothers had a photoshoot to celebrate their childrens’ birthdays and express love for their alma mater. From left, Hye Yoon Choi with her daughter, Haihm Park; Hyemin Lee with her daughter, Sarang Park; So Jung Lee with her son, Eden Chung; and Yoojin Park with her daughter, Chloe Chung.
