STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM
for children raised in welfare homes.
Yejin was raised at Dongmyung

to the United States at the age of 12.
She met her new family in 2012 and
began a new chapter in her life.
Yejin is the very first beneficiary of
the YANA Study Abroad Program.
She has been attending
Case Western Reserve University
since Fall 2020, majoring in nursing.

"Yejin, this is the home you can always come back to.”
These words from my American dad are forever engraved
in my heart and have been my driving force in life.
Through the YSAP program, I learned the happiness of
having a home and a family to go back to.
The warmth and outpouring of love I received from YANA family allowed me
to dream of building my own happy family in the future,
which I never thought was possible in the orphanage.
Moreover, attending school in the States enabled me
to dream of becoming a nurse to help others.
YANA has made me realize how valuable and blessed I am.
Being a part of YANA for nearly 8 years, I realized that
there are still so many broken children without families.
I pray that these children can find healthy families and be full of happiness.
As YANA became my home, I hope to become a person that can be
a family for these children and reciprocates the love I received.
