Explain your role at VidMob and how it contributes to the Tripod?

I’m an Associate Product Manager at VidMob. My focus is on developing our iOS app. I also manage all the feature requests that come in, the product newsletter, and fill in for all the product managers when needed!

What brought you to VidMob?

I was interested in the impact Vidmob is having in the marketing industry, its cool partnerships with so many different social platforms, as well as the amazing people! 

How did you get into your field?

I’m fortunate enough to say that Vidmob is my first official job!!

Name three people (living or dead) who inspire you and why?

  • My parents 
  • My parents: Probably a very common answer, but still unique to me because my parents inspire me. They’re an example of responsibility, leadership, patience, love, and always going above and beyond with what they have and what they can do!
  • Kim Yeon Koung: She’s a top volleyball player, and accomplished so many great things despite the odds not being in her favor. She shows amazing leadership, and knows how to prioritize matters in every situation.

What do you like most about your work?

I love working together with so many different people and discussing how to get our products to the next level.

What’s the biggest work or life challenge you were able to overcome?

Helping my family during times of scarcity.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given? Why? 

Try it, then see!” I’m someone who likes to ensure there’s a high chance of success before taking action, but often, I just gotta do it and then hope!
