Senior Presentation - Hyelom Love By: Jared Lewis

Last Friday, Hyelom Love’s senior presentation delved into his adoption process, showing us the the struggle he went through, having grown up used to the “to the code of communal” of living and having to adapt to the “materialistic community running a race for popularity that would eventually lead to nowhere” that he moved into. 

In the background of his presentation, Hyelom projected photos from childhood: his orphanage and, later, photos with his family, like the one pictured here. He spoke about the difficulties he found adjusting, while also reflecting briefly on the healing process that came with his supportive family and the networks he found in his boarding school families. He exposed the Dublin community to the experiences that people moving to America go through and what it’s like to adapt an entire lifestyle into something that is completely new.
