Well qualified

Here’s some news you don’t read every day.

The winner of the Miss Korea 2002 pageant, Keum Na-na (21), has received a letter of acceptance from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on Monday. The letter from MIT stated that Ms. Keum is an outstanding student with a great deal of potential and possesses both beauty and intelligence

Considering the fact that MIT also nominated her for a scholarship, Ms. Keum no doubt obtained acceptance from the prestigious university thanks to her high marks in academics.

The letter from MIT noted Ms. Keum’s beauty. Since when did college admissions factor that in when accepting a student. Not that the former Ms. Korea doesn’t grade well IMHO. Her skills are very nice.

Keum first attracted public attention when she won the Miss Korea beauty pageant. She graduated from Gyeongbuk Science High School, and went to Kyungpook National University to study Medicine.

Brains and beuaty. Was Na-Na’s answer to a beauty pageant question ‘How would you like to change the world?’ that she would wanted to be the first Miss Korea to go to MIT? I’m betting she didn’t say World Peace.
