Own Words

I am a Korean American, although I don’t feel Korean. I was born in South Korean and was adopted when I was 3 months old. I was raised by a Caucasian family in a very Caucasian part of the country, the midwest. Since I moved to California, I have been trying to embrace and learn about my Korean heritage.

I am designing my thesis project on transracial adoption and focusing primarily on the emotional effects, the identity crisis and abandonment issues experienced by adopted Korean Americans.

With this project I hope to one day feel just as much Korean as I do American.
