Own Words

안녕하새요?

I was born in Andong, South Korea in 1988 and was adopted to Iowa, USA right before the Seoul Summer Olympics when I was 3 months old. I’ve lived here for most of my life and know very little about where I am from. I am currently taking a beginners Korean language course at the University of Iowa. Go Hawks!

As I get older, I am wanting to learn more about where I am from. I’ve had to live with different medical issues throughout my life so it’s led me to strive to become an Emergency Medicine Doctor; so I can help others in the world.

A lil’ saying I live by:
“Love to live, and live to love” <3
