About Kewho Min
Kewho Min is a New York-based CPA with a creative, high-energy disposition that fuels two sides of his life: his professional work in accounting, and his personal interests and hobbies.
Kewho earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (with a concentration in Accounting) from Montclair State University in New Jersey. He spent over a decade working in New York City, moved to California for a Corporate Controller position at Jefferies Group, LLC, and returned to New York City in 2016.
Kewho Min enjoys a wide variety of sports. Whether it is watching a baseball or football game on TV or in person, or enjoying an International Football match on the pitch, he feels right at home. Some of his fondest memories reside in his love of sports. One of his earliest sports-related memories is watching a Cowboys vs. Giants game on a black and white TV with his family. The experience was nothing short of life-changing for young Kewho, who realized he’d found his football team for life. He’s stuck with the Cowboys through all of their ups and downs ever since. Kewho’s absolute passion, however, is for the NY Yankees and he has attended games at both the new and old Yankee Stadium. One of his fondest memories occurred in 1996 where he watched the Yankees win the World Series. While the win itself was a magnificent moment, what truly made it special was the fact that he was at Yankee Stadium to witness the win firsthand. And quite possibly the most heartwarming, powerful moment that Kewho Min noticed was that, after the victory, regardless of race, gender or social status, the city was united. Together, the entire city celebrated a long-awaited championship.
When he’s not rooting for his favorite teams, Kewho Min is simply enjoying the bustling metropolis of New York in general. What really draws Kewho into the city is the fact that there is always something to do, always something to see and always something going on. From going out on tourist-like excursions like visiting the Empire State building or Times Square, to enjoying some of the Big Apple’s hidden gems, like Decoy’s delicious Peking duck, or the fancy Beauty & Essex, Kewho can be found walking the crowded city streets. It has earned its nickname of “The City That Never Sleeps.”
Kewho Min also likes to get involved in local events. He is passionate about many causes, such as child abuse prevention, education, and world health, and he plans to get more directly involved with local nonprofit organizations. Kewho believes that transparency in funding is paramount in nonprofit work. Contributors must feel confident that their donations are applied to foundational work, not to administrative costs– it is the only way that organizations can inspire true change.
Kewho Min’s core philosophies shape much of his day-to-day activities. A proud husband and father himself, Kewho credits his parents, who worked tirelessly to provide a better life for their children, with instilling the family values that he still cherishes today. He is equally loyal to his friends, who attest to his willingness to advise them on both personal and professional matters, give them the helping hand they need, and look out for them at any cost.
Kewho Min is also a major proponent for taking control of one’s own destiny. At the end of the day, self-sufficiency is key, and this applies to everything from professional careers to personal endeavors. That’s why he advocates for equal opportunities across the board, so that people have the core resources and tools they need to work their way up. He feels that society today it too busy looking for what is owed to them. At the end of the day, the individual, not society should set his or her own destiny.
Kewho Min is always looking for new opportunities to learn, and in his spare time he enjoys reading accounting books and brushing up on his industry knowledge.
Kewho has also recently took an interest in the wonderful world of fishing. The adrenaline rush that comes from finally reeling in that fish you’ve struggled so hard to catch makes the sport incredibly enjoying for him. He has also recently dedicated his time to health and fitness. Whenever he can, Kewho exercises as much as possible and eats healthier foods in order to have a stronger body and mind.
