Sung-Ju Kim always has had an interest in how the human body works and wanted to go into a career in the medical field.
He just didn’t know which field.
Therefore, when the opportunity to serve as a dental assistant at Promise Community Health Center in Sioux Center presented itself, he said it was “an easy decision” for him to go that direction.
“The reason why I was excited to serve at Promise as a dental assistant is because I love to help people,” Sung-Ju said. “I wanted to work in a place that understands the values of helping the community – with the drive to help all persons to the best of our ability.”
Sung-Ju grew up much of his childhood in Minneapolis and graduated from Sheldon High School in 2013. He then went on to Iowa State University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in biology in 2017.
With his new role at Promise, he’s now working within his field of study.
“I hope that I can become a dental assistant that can hold his own in stressful situations,” he said. “I hope I can be self-sufficient and able to help those around me to the best of my ability.”
Sung-Ju has been impressed by the health center.
“Promise is an an awesome organization,” he said. “It is full of kind people that are willing to help you no matter what.”
