Annie Bae, College Counselor

Annie's journey started as an ESL student who immigrated from South Korea to the US in elementary school. Understanding the challenges of learning English in a foreign country, she decided to major in English at UCLA and returned to the motherland to teach English to elementary and middle school students. Having fallen in love with Medieval Literature in undergrad, Annie then moved to England where she received her master's in Medieval Literature. 


Once she returned to Los Angeles, she discovered college counseling and decided to return to school to expand her knowledge of best practices and research surrounding cross-cultural counseling and the admissions landscape, leading her to the Harvard Graduate School of Education. There, she found her calling in Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging (EDIB) work as she interned at the Office of Diversity and Minority Affairs in the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. With her team of like-minded advocates, she assists in the recruitment, outreach, and retention of graduate Underrepresented Minority (URM) students at Harvard. 


As a college counselor, Annie is passionate about advocating for under-resourced students and guiding students to discover their own unique interests and passions in the context of their strengths. In her free time, Annie can be found playing Call of Duty, reading British literature, or watching Korean dramas.
