MS. HYPEIN IM WAS SELECTED through a rigorous national process of interviews, application and essay. The AMMF program provides a three-week program in Europe is designed to give "Fellows" a more comprehensive understanding of Europe and the importance of transatlantic relations by discovering the social, cultural, and economic circumstances affecting the development of community foundations in a country other than their own. Her selection was based on her fitting the Foundation's requirements of somebody who is intellectually curious, strong potential for leadership, strong record of civic/community involvement, thoughtful, flexible, independent, resourceful team players and a good sense of humor.

SHE HOPES THAT THIS PROGRAM will lead her into a career in helping the disenfranchised find access to opportunities (U.S. & Europe), to explore if faith organizations are involved in the government and social structure in bringing its resources and influence to the community at large. Of particular interest to her is seeing where the Korean immigrant community resides in each country and seeing where they are in their assimilation into the social structure of each country. Of particular interest is the role the second generation is playing in the newly adopted country.

THIS PRESTIGIOUS LEADERSHIP PROGRAM will take all the candidates to the following prominent European cities: Washington D.C., Brussels/Belgium, Amerstam/Netherlands, Copenhagen/Denmark, Hansburg/Germany, Liston/Portugal, Lyon/France, Madrid/Spain, Budapest/Hungary, Prague/Czech Republic, Warsaw/Poland, Krakow/Poland and Berlin/Germany throughout March 2001.
