“I was born in Seoul in South Korea and adopted to Denmark at four months of age with my twin sister. I grew up in Denmark, and in 2011 I decided to move to Sydney to work and explore this part of the world. I've been lucky to work for a global company in a role that allowed me to travel around Asia. These trips also took me to South Korea where I was fortunate to find and reconnect with my birth parents and two biological sisters. My twin sister is also living in Sydney and hopes to become a citizen soon.”

Congratulations to all of our new citizens and thanks City of Sydney for making another #AusDaySyd one to remember!
