Matthew Chung, born in Seattle, Washington, is your average 22-year-old Korean-American individual who has lived throughout the northeast from the tri-state of New Jersey to the seafood infested coast of Maine and the pacific northwest. Playing with a rough hand in life, he enlisted in the United States Military shortly after graduating high school. Years later, now a student at Rutgers University, he’s pursuing an education in computer sciences. Despite his challenges and emotional scars, he continues to carry the burden of others on his shoulders as though he feels the duty to those he has lost; to feel like he has to continue on where they could not.
Against all odds he has overcome many close calls and continues the fight against the darkness that progressively tries to consume him. Despite these struggles, he has found hope, support, and love from members of the Rutgers community and friends. As someone once said, “Just shows you have a soul, you haven’t died yet! So don’t give up and keep fighting ’til you have reached your deepest desires!” Safe to say those words really resonated within him and he continues on strong.
