I moved to US from Korea a month before my 12th birthday. This is my 20th year in this country.
I'm the only member in my family who has not gone back to my country; yet, when I was 23, I decided to take the SAT 2 exam in Korean just for fun, and scored an 800- a perfect score for the exam!
Since then, I have had a brief experience with interpretation jobs for a local non-profit legal services organization and have translated Korean military maps. I also have basic knowledge in Chinese and Japanese, and a vast amount of knowledge in Korean culture. I have no problem reading and understanding Korean newspapers.
In my spare time, I like to listen to Korean music, watch Korean TV programs, and visit Korean websites.
