National Leadership Program, Summer 2018
Thomas Noh was a Communications Intern with RespectAbility for Summer 2018. RespectAbility is a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities for and with people with disabilities. As a rising senior at Thomas S. Wootton High School in Rockville, Maryland, he has studied various programming languages such as HTML, Java, and C++. He is also fluent in Korean and studying Spanish for four years. Noh is seeking a learning experience and mentorship to help his future career as a successful entrepreneur. Noh’s primary goal is to become a powerful influencer through entrepreneurship. He wants to use his influence as a tool to mentor others and make positive changes to the society both domestically and internationally.
Noh has a sibling with Autism who has dealt with unfair treatments and bullying. After witnessing his sibling’s exclusion from his peers, Noh decided to join RespectAbility to learn more about how he can become a better ally for people with disabilities. Before joining RespectAbility, he has had numerous experience in volunteering to help the homeless, refugees and minorities as a leader in Youth With A Mission and Week of Hope.
Outside of work, Noh is a professional beatboxer and currently placed as Top 16 in International Midwest Beatbox competition. He also likes to read, play soccer and work on his part-time online business. Currently, he is reading 12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson and Essence of Success by Earl Nightingale.
