Jinyoung Lee Englund, a University of Washington graduate, was recently selected as one of the “2015 50 Most Beautiful” by The Hill.
She began her policy work in Mozambique, where she worked after graduating from UW.
When she came home, she wanted to address the kind of poverty she’d seen overseas. She ran a Republican field office in 2008, which earned her a job on the leadership staff of Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.).
Englund now advocates for the digital currency bitcoin as vice president of strategy for the Digital Currency Council. She hopes that she can help people who have been excluded from the banking system, such as the women she knew in Mozambique. (end)
