The son of an orphan and a famine survivor, an advocate for strong public schools, and a Rhodes Scholar, Andy is the first Democratic member of Congress of Korean descent.

Andy served as a civilian advisor in Afghanistan in the Obama State Department, beginning his career as a national security official for the White House.
