Choi Min Ho, the daughter of South Korean president Moon Jae-in, wants to sell her mother’s iPhone 6 series to raise funds for her high school graduation.
Choi and her father have raised $10,000 so far to fund her trip to Los Angeles.
Cho is in her early 20s.
She is the second child in the family to be introduced to Apple’s new 6 Plus, which is rumored to be the company’s most affordable model.
Cho’s mother, Woo Min Ho (yes, Woo is her real name), said that the iPhone 6s has become a symbol of her daughter’s high school experience.
“It’s a symbol for me, and I want to show the whole world how great the iPhone is,” Woo Min said.
“If my daughter were to sell the iPhone 5s, I want her to give me a discount, because that’s what I want.
I want my daughter to be able to buy an iPhone.”
Woo Min’s son, Lee Min Ho(yes, Lee), has been working with the family’s local Korean nonprofit organization, Young South Korea.
They’re planning a fundraising campaign in a bid to raise money for their high school, Cho Min Ho said.
Lee is also hoping to sell his mother’s first iPhone to raise awareness about his education.
Cho said that her mother was very protective of her iPhone and her life in Seoul.
“She was very close to me,” she said.
Cho Min Hui said she was surprised to see that the family was selling their daughter’s phone.
“It’s very shocking.
I thought they would sell it to me and donate it to a Korean charity,” Cho Min said, referring to the government agency that oversees Korean nonprofits.
“But they’re not.”
Cho Min is not the only high schooler who has started to raise cash for her mother.
Yoon Ho (who is not her real last name), the daughter and niece of South Korea’s first lady Park Geun-hye, has been selling her iPhone 6 as a way to give back to her community.
Yoons mom, Cho Won Hyun, has also started selling her mom’s iPhone.
She said that it was a dream of hers to get the phone for her sister, a junior at South Korea University.
“I thought it would be great to have a family member sell my iPhone,” Cho Won Hui told ABC News.
“She’s so busy now that she can’t even go out of the house.”
Yoon’s mother said she wanted to share the good news with her daughter.
“What we need is a real family like my parents,” Cho Yoon told ABC.
“So we will do it.”
Cho said she is still considering selling her mothers iPhone 6.
“When I bought my iPhone 6, I was thinking that this phone is the most important thing for my family,” she told ABCNews.com.
“And now I’m thinking, this phone will help us to have more family and friends.”
Cho Cho said her mother, who is now in her 30s, still has a lot of hopes for the new iPhone.
“My mom has the most positive outlook, she wants to do well in school and get an education, but she’s really strong and she’s proud of herself,” she added.
“Her father is really optimistic.
She knows how she can get a job, but we’re still trying to figure it out.”
