Over a dozen accomplished Korean American leaders from the DC metro area will share their stories, careers, and life paths with young people -- of all ages -- to inspire them to serve their country and pursue their dreams.

This will not be a day of long speeches and ceremony. Rather, we will have small, informal, intimate gatherings that allow young people to have a personal dialogue with experienced, talented, and passionate leaders from our community.

This event is free of charge and open to the public, but registration is required.

CKA and LOKA look forward to an enjoyable day of learning and sharing. Please spread the word!
