Home, also known as 집 in Korean, came from a personal connection with the designer during a time of homesickness. College students often experience being homesick since they are far away from home and that is something that is often challenging for international students specifically. Not being able to visit home during the pandemic is something that many people experienced where loneliness was more prevalent than ever. This inspired the creation of the cookbook where the recipes are from the designer’s mom with dishes that she would make when growing up. This project is something very close to the heart of the designer and helps bring the international student community together with something we all have in common.
