|Procedencia: I was born in South Korea, lived in Seoul till I was fifteen, and then came to America.|
|En la tierra desde…January 12th.|
|En PGH desde…I moved to Pittsburgh in March 2005 and plan to remain in this charming city for another couple of years.|
|Ahora en…I live at the edge of Shadyside, right next door to Maria’s apartment.|
|Por qué viniste a Pittsburgh: I came to Pittsburgh because my boss moved our lab to the University of Pittsburgh. I work at UPMC now with Maria. I also take classes at the Pittsburgh Filmmakers from time to time. I love movies!|
|I would like to thank Maria. She is a lovely person, and I am really happy that she came into my life. She is the bridge that connects me to the Patanegra where I have found many more great friends. I am eternally indebted to Maria for this.
When I am with Americans, I feel like I am a Korean who do not quite belong; when I am with Koreans, I feel like an American; When I am with the Patanegra, I simply feel like I am among friends. So, I thank you all for welcoming me into the Patanegra. You are a great bunch!
