We introduce Hancock Park, a club we can call the star of the LA region. Hancock Park is one of the chapters from central Los Angeles and it’s also known as HCP. This club was formed by Hwarang Chairman with enthusiasm and leadership. Hancock park started small. Our club also had problems to be stated but with motivated leadership by the president and with the teamwork of parents and members they have overcome those crises and grew as they fix those problems.
Present, Hancock park has unique and talented members. Penike is a team of 6 with rappers and a singer. In Youtube, their total views are 17,382 and counting. Penike creates a type of song that the members of the group like and represents the strength of highschool hip-hop. Also, there are different members of Nanta and Korean drum. The members also are part of a variety of communities such as art, dance, and medical. Hancock Park is also very demonstrative, we believe that one of the most important parts of the leadership is communication. We are one of the open-minded chapters, where we respect everyone and anyone is welcomed. We are very passionate and persevering members. Currently, all of our club members are bilingual and we love to help our community. Throughout the Hwarang events, we were able to confidently help people who are in the Korean-American community, such as keep our Koreatown, WCC painting, Korean Festival, etc. Not just the Korean-American community but we were able to help with our community in general. We participated in events like LA river cleanup, planting trees, eye camp, and vision concert. Hancock park will always try our best to be a muse to other clubs and each member will help to not misalign from the Hwarang mentality. And keep actively lead our volunteer events.
Hi, my name is Alison Moon. I am a junior at Immaculate Heart High School and the president of the HCP chapter. I joined Hwarang late last year and I was shocked to be so welcomed into a community of passionate and hard-working individuals who shared the same values of empathy and trust like me. In a short yet valuable span of time, I learned the true significance of volunteering and experienced the joys of planning projects to help others despite the challenges that arose throughout the process. HCP is a family of eager, goal-driven future leaders that strive to proudly represent our Korean American identity through bettering the larger Californian community that we are a part of. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
