Own Words

I am Korean American in every sense of the word. My dad is American and my mom is Korean. And of course they met in the usual way - the military.

I LOVE Korean food, hands down my favorite cuisine. But I love pizza, hot dogs at a football game, and tex/mex food.

I've never been to Korea and hope that one day I can go and meet the zillions of cousins that I have over there.

I am obsessed with all things Asian, especially Korean. I love listening to K-Pop and if I could get my hands on some Korean Drama I would! ... interestingly enough though- I don't speak/read/write/understand Korean. I never got the opportunity to know it. My mother wanted my brother and I to not have a difficulty in learning English and as a result I have no knowledge of the Korean language. I know a few words here and there mostly related to food and family members but that's it. One day I will learn it and know it and use it and I will pass that on to my children.

I <3 being KA!!!!
