About Yeongcheol Won:
Yeongcheol Won grew up in South Korea, along with his parents and older sister. He came from a hard working family and understood the value of helping them. He arrived in the U.S. in 2009 eager to experience American life, improve his English, and make friends.

After attending FVTC, he served in the army from March 2010 to December 2011 as a mandatory service. He came back to the U.S. in order to achieve his degree in dentistry. He is currently enrolled in the Laboratory Science Technician program at FVTC. His future goal is to serve as a mission dental worker in countries including Asia.

North Korea is, back again, in the news and back again for all the bad reasons.

According to North Korea's official KCNA news agency, the country's leader Kim Jong Un “judged the time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists.” While many point out the history of ridiculous claims and bellicose rhetoric North Korean government has been infamous for, for one FVTC student, a South Korean national Yeongcheol, the country to the north of his motherland is no paper tiger.

Having served his country in the army, Yeongcheol Won is back in the United States, studying in the Laboratory Science Technician program at Fox Valley Technical College. He comes to you with a unique look at one of the most militarized regions of the world, with over 1 million of North Korean troops threatening not only the relative piece in the area but also globally.
