“Jihoon is a pleasure to work with. He is attentive to detail, and is clearly very committed to his tasks, regardless of how substantive (or not) they are. He has a high level of professionalism and showed a dedication to the Environmental Law Institute from the onset of his internship. He works hard, is proactive, isn’t afraid to ask questions and takes initiative. One of his multiple project managers said, 'I just want Jihoon to know that he’s awesome.' The ELI staff was sad to see him go. Out of all of the interns we have had, he is one of our favorites.”
