World Trade Center St. Louis/St. Louis Mosaic Project, Assistant Project Manager

Bomi Park is an immigrant from South Korea. She came to the United States for the first time as a high school exchange student ten years ago, with the dream of becoming an English teacher in her country. After many years, Bomi decided to call St. Louis home, mainly because of the relationships she has cultivated here as well as the opportunities she discovered herself in. Bomi is an Assistant Project Manager at the World Trade Center St. Louis and the St. Louis Mosaic Project, and she works hard to create an environment that is welcoming and inclusive to foreign-born people in the St. Louis area.

Bomi graduated from McKendree University where she earned her bachelor's degree in Psychology. She currently serves as a Marketing Vice Chair on the Board of Young Nonprofit Professionals Network St. Louis (YNPN St. Louis). In her spare time, she volunteers as the Area Representative for an exchange student program and helps foreign students and their host families have a great cultural exchanging experience. Volunteering at a local nonprofit organization that provides employment to people experiencing homelessness is one of her ways to give back to the community. Bomi enjoys and appreciates the nature very much, and loves to rock climb with her husband and friends. Bomi loves to meet people and make friends. She loves to find ways to bring people together, and more often than not, discovered it is food that works without fail!
