Hello! My name’s Becky and I am currently finishing my Master’s in English at U of M Flint. I studied English at Michigan State University where I received a Bachelor’s in English. I am a voracious reader and one of my favorite books is To Kill a Mocking Bird. When I have time outside of school I love to spend time with my friends going to movies, shopping and out to eat. I am an avid runner and training for a half marathon this summer. I love to run and workout almost everyday of the week. I am also very close to my family and I have one older brother.
I am a Korean adoptee and I came to America at six months old from a city outside of Seoul. I have future plans of returning to South Korea in search of my birth parents and hopefully to write a book about the experience. There are not a lot of voices representing Korean adoptees and I hope sharing my story can help others in the same position. It is a different experience growing up with a Caucasian family and environment where there are few Koreans. In college I learned more about my other culture and I love Korean food! I also worked at a Korean culture camp which was a rewarding time. When I have more time I would like to learn the language because I would like to have some knowledge of it when I return to Korea.
