Born in South Korea and raised in Texas, I’m a southern girl who always belonged in the city. I currently live in New York City and work full time for a company that I’ve loved for years called Poppin.
I started this blog back in 2010 shortly after graduating. I spent 18 years of my life playing soccer and was ready for a new adventure! At the time I spent a lot of time traveling for work and decided I wanted to start this site as an outlet for creativity and inspiration. I knew it would be hard at first, but what I didn’t know was that it would become such an incredible way for me to share my experiences and inspire others to take chances.
In 2012 I made my way to Chicago and fell in love – with the city and my life. I was going through a big life transition, and it was the first time where I put myself in a situation that was completely new and unknown. It was insanely scary, but one of the best decisions I ever made. I spent my time in the Windy City running around with girls that became my best friends and dancing and eating our way through the 3 years I spent there. I love everything about that city and those years (except for the winter… I still loathe you).
Sure enough, life took another turn in the summer of 2014 when I was offered a job and moved to New York City. Almost 3 years later I still can’t believe I get to call this place home! I love that the city is full of endless exploration and I can usually be found trying to check as many things off of my bucket list as possible. We just moved into a new apartment and are enjoying this next chapter of our lives. We travel often, love exploring new restaurants, and just enjoying the adventure that is living in this crazy city.
