Sonio Kum ’21 is from Durham, North Carolina. He decided to become a Kenan Scholar because of the program’s networking and learning opportunities, as well as to become part of a community of like-minded business students.
In the summer of 2018, the business administration major and psychology minor volunteered at a nonprofit based in Taiwan where he translated important documents for their website. By doing so, he helped expose more of the organization’s work to English-speaking populations around the world. He is an avid member of the UNC Rock Climbing team and frequent user of UNC’s Makerspace. In his spare time, he loves to read, perform magic, play Pokemon Go and pursue his passion for flying cars.
