Meet OCENET: Eunyoung Shin

Eunyoung Shin,
International Admissions and Enrolment Administrator,
Ottawa International Student Program (OISP)

What are some of your main roles at OCENET?
ES: In my role as Admissions Coordinator, I work with foreign agents who place students in OCDSB schools and with school administrators in both the elementary and secondary panels. To ensure that students coming to our schools are placed in the most appropriate school, program and grade level, I review their academic records, English language capabilities and goals.

What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?
ES: I enjoy meeting so many different people from around the world and learning about their cultures. It is always a pleasure to work with the OCENET team and all of our school contacts.

What have been some of your accomplishments at OCENET that you are most proud of?
ES: When the students that I have helped are enjoying their placement and learning experience, I am happy and proud that I was involved. I also help organize and chaperone OCENET extracurricular trips and activities which gives me a wonderful opportunity to get to know our students.

What new projects are you working on at OCENET?
ES: Last year a colleague and I organized an information session for Korean students needing extra assistance in understanding the Ontario school system. We have continued to provide this service and have received very positive feedback. I also initiated visits to our elementary and secondary schools to gain first hand knowledge of their programs to better help our agents and students applying to OISP.

What are some of your interests outside of worklife?
ES: I studied fashion design in Korea and really enjoy the creative process.  I keep fit by working out two to three times a week and doing yoga. My husband and I participate in many outdoor activities with our daughters.
