Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a junior attending Seoul International School in South Korea. Although I currently live in Seoul, I spent much of my childhood in Vancouver, Canada. Through this international upbringing, I became interested in learning more about social and political issues that concern not just my immediate community, but the international community. Through Global Ethics Network, I hope to share my thoughts with other students around the world, as well as gain insights into how others who have grown up in different backgrounds may approach issues differently than I do.

Will Xi Jinping be open to reform? What could be the effects of lingering U.S.-China trade tensions?
