Chelle Jones (2006-2009 ETA) has her B.A. in History (’06) from the University of Chicago and her M.A. in Korean Studies (’14) from Seoul National University, South Korea.

During her eight years in Korea, she took an active role with nonprofit organizations, including being the founder of the Korean chapter of anti-street harassment organization, Hollaback!
