On a scale of 1-10 (1 being absolute beginner and 10 being native), how would you rate your Korean language abilities?

2-I was born in Korea, but I grew up on the east coast and have only recently started learning more about my culture.

Why are you interested in learning or improving your Korean?

I have found that learning more about my culture helps to foster self growth and allows me to learn more about my self. I also have had a strong interest in learning languages since high school. I feel that being able to communicate with Koreans will certainly help to improve my understanding of the culture as well.

Have you ever been to Korea? Any Plans?

I went to Korea in September 2011 and stayed there for about 7 months while I taught English. I really enjoyed my stay there and would like to return soon.

What's your favorite Korean TV drama? Movie? Musical group? (it's ok if you don't know ;)

I have not seen my Korean TV dramas or movies. I love listening to Yiruma.

What are your hobbies? Do you mind contributing to this group minimum $10-$15 or more? Every meetup group has fee.

I feel as though I have difficulties narrowing down some of my interests and making time to participate in all of my hobbies. I previously mentioned that I have been running for the past 14 years, but I am much more involved in cross training now and can be found rowing, kayaking, lifting, cycling, and hiking. Aside from exercising, I am very passionate about cooking and reading. I also enjoy seeing live music.


I am passionate about learning, helping others, staying fit and being healthy, music, and soaking up the outdoors. I have been an avid runner for 12 years. I am interested in activities that challenge me both mentally and physically.
