HARD AS NAILS | Sarah Se-Jung Oh


Sarah Se-Jung Oh is a graduating high school senior at Korea International School. Originally from Australia, she moved to South Korea about four years ago. Oh was drawn to Narrative Medicine because it encompasses her values: literature, medicine, and most importantly empathy. After publishing her AP Capstone Research Paper on the application of Narrative Medicine to South Korea in the Intima 2018 Fall issue, Oh has taken a more creative approach to her understanding of Narrative Medicine: art. Inspired by her research, she has created works that reveal the truths of today's healthcare. Integrating her love for writing and drawing, the artwork was made in an effort to fortify the power of embedding the arts with medicine.
