I was born in Seoul, Korea but was
adopted by Italian-Irish parents. I'm incredibly close to my family, but I value the six months I was able to spend
abroad in Seoul learning Korean heritage, culture, art, and language. For me,
finding balance between being adopted and being Korean was an important process
in my life. I'm so thankful for my awesome family and journey. I like mentoring
[…] in case they
need some insider advice.
Going to (private room) karaoke is one of
my favorite things to do; I rarely pass up the chance. Singing is one of my
secret loves. My
fantasy job is "pop star.”
Playing video games is something I
grew up with. It was one of the only things my older brother would let me do
with him. I still enjoy it. My love for it is actually what got my boyfriend's
attention. Enough so that he messaged me to ask my game stats and if I'd like
to go to his birthday party.
I'm obsessed with popcorn; I eat it
about every day. Right now I'm in love with this contraption our friends gave
us for Christmas. It's basically a glorified glass jar (from Sur La Table) that
lets you put kernels in it and zap them in the microwave. I used to stove pop
but this is tool makes it easier and much faster! I LOVE IT!
Drawing is something I cannot live
I've found a way to incorporate my hobby into my career. I hope everyone is as
lucky as me, but it didn't come easily or without a lot of hard work and
for something you love, it's worth it, right?
