Racially, I am Asian. I was born in Gimcheon, South Korea in 1963. I was raised in Seoul, South Korea, and moved to the United States when I was 23 years old, following in my parents’ footsteps. Philadelphia became my family’s new home in the US. I lived with my parents and siblings there for less than a year while attending Temple University and taking ESL courses. Soon after I moved, I married my husband in Philadelphia and together we moved to New York. I have lived in New York ever since. So, Philadelphia is a very special place to me.
