Who am I?
Hello, my name is Jeungwon Lee. I am from Seoul, the capital of South Korea. My home is in Gangnam, which is really famous for the song ‘Gangnam Style.’ I am studying at Berkeley City College, one of the Peralta Community Colleges, with Media Studies major. I dreamed of becoming a reporter since when I was seven, and I am still pursuing my dream.
I am an active person. I love hanging out with my friends. Also, I am a good listener. If you want to tell me your story, or to ask my advice, it will be my pleasure to listen and answer. My favorite hobby is singing at Karaoke. I am not a good singer, but I enjoy singing. Taking picture is my other hobby. I always capture anything special in my life because I believe taking picture is the best way to save my special moments.
Why did I decide to study in the U.S.?
Studying in the U.S. is a great opportunity and a big challenge for me to make me ready for the future. When I lived in Korea, I had learned English over five years but I could not speak English very well because there was no chance to speak English with foreign friends. I used to work at a company as an intern, and there were so many works required to speak English. From the internship experience, I decided to study in the U.S. to speak English fluently.
I still remember the first day in the U.S. I was afraid of going outside at that time because I worried about being lost on the street. Also, I felt lonely because I could not share my emotions with English speakers because of my English skills. However, I overcame everything. Now, I consider Berkeley as my second hometown. I have met many friends from different cultures, and I love them so much. Also, there are so many delicious foods here from different countries. I love trying it!
Why am I so excited to be a blogger?
Since I was seven years old, I have written in my diary every day. Also, I always participate in writing contests. I like writing because I feel really happy when I write about people and me. When I read my notebook and diary, I can recall what I was thinking and why I was happy for something before. Also, I love sharing my stories. I am so happy when people empathize with my story. I usually participate in media activities in Korea to share and provide good information and stories. I was so happy when I read email about finding blogger because I was looking forward to be a blogger here! I am would like to share so many things with you. Thank you.
