Walking into D3 during lunch on a Thursday, the first thing you can see is people gathered around a table, enjoying an assortment of food. This is Korean Club.

The club seeks to educate its members about Korean culture through a combination of both culinary delights and informative presentations.

“I joined because I’m half Korean and I thought it would be a good way to enjoy aspects of my culture,” said Sabrina Gasparini, a junior. “I’m hoping to gain a deeper understanding of my culture and maybe understand how many more Koreans there are in our school and in the Bay Area.”

Korean Club provides a way for people of Korean heritage to experience their culture in an environment where they may not necessarily learn about it otherwise.

“Being Korean is really important because you have a family here and not a lot of Korean people live around here. When you meet other Korean people you grow a close bond with them,” said Marina Gasparini, a junior.

Although there are other clubs representing Asian heritage in Carlmont, Korean Club wants to represent the Koreans at the school and the community.

“It’s important to share Korean culture and be closer to people who are Korean,” said Christine Kang, a vice president and a senior. “We also wanted to spread and share Korean culture with those who haven’t been exposed to it yet.”

The club gives an important opportunity to members who seek to be active and educated about their community in a fun way, whether that means enjoying traditional Korean food or learning more about Korea through a presentation.

“Your community is part of your family. Your family is really important, and it determines your values,” said Sabrina Gasparini.

A large part of Korean Club comes from the culinary education; every meeting, members get to enjoy different types of Korean food while immersing themselves in their culture.

“I want to have a nice lunch whenever I come here, and meeting new Korean people is always very nice,” said Marina Gasparini.

Korean Club meets during lunch on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays every month in room D3.
