Sung was born in South Korea and came to the US in 2006 and has resided in Troy ever since. Her husband’s research job at Wayne State University brought her and her family to the area. She has a son who is a junior in Troy High and a daughter, 8th grade in Boulan Park Middle School. She has been a stay-at-home-mom since her son turned two years old. She is very involved with volunteering at her children’s school, and has made many friends and it has helped her become more comfortable in the community. She finds it interesting living in a multi-cultural place like Troy and watching her children get an education that is very different from what she experienced in Kora.
