What a beautiful face I have found in this place that is circling all round the sun. What a beautiful dream that could flash on the screen in a blink of an eye and be gone from me. Let me hold it close and keep it here with me. And one day we will die and our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea. But for now we are young, let us lay in the sun and LIST every beautiful thing we can see.

I’m sometimes asked why I identify as Korean American. There’s a lot of mixed race people in the world and it may puzzle some as to why we choose our minority heritage. I think the answer lies with our personal experience. Whether we choose it or not, we will have a minority experience and it will frame the entirety of our life.

  • I watched as my mom struggled to learn English from a book till late into the night, listening and practicing pronunciation with recordings to try to remove her accent that often caused her to be treated differently. One day she told me I just can’t do anymore -this is as far as I can go.
  • I inherited violence that originated from the poverty caused by the Japanese occupation of Korea for decades and the Korean War.

  • being cold
  • when there's a heavy sex scene on tv and I am self conscious about my breathing while cuddling, like am I revealing that I'm turned on?
