Park Bom is a singer signed to YG Entertainment and is the lead vocalist of the girl group 2NE1. During her childhood, she left at the age of 12 to study abroad in the United States. She graduated from Gould High School in Bethel, ME and enrolled into Lesley University in Boston, Massachusetts for Psychology. During that period, she struggled with staying with her major rather than pursue her dream in music. She had always had a passion for music, but never pursued it because her parents had always disapproved. But after much consideration and encouragement from her Aunt, Bom transferred to Berklee College of Music and eventually made it to YG Entertainment after many failed auditions.
