About Me Questions
Q. How old are you?
A. I’m 22 and enjoying every moment of it!
Q. What nationality are you and do you speak a second language?
A. I am Korean American. I lived in Seoul, Korea for four years (K-3rd), but because I attended a foreign/American school, I am conversational but not fluent.
Q. What is your job?
A. I am currently a student at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles. I just finished my A.A degree in product development and currently working to get my B.S in business management.
Q. What do you eventually want to do with your fashion degree?
A. I want to get into women’s activewear!
Q. What time do you typically go to sleep/wake up?
A. During the week, I’m typically in bed by 11-11:30 pm and wake up every morning by 4:50 am.
Q. Why do you wake up so early? Are you naturally a morning person?
A. I get up early because I like to get my workout in before I start my day (I find that I have more energy when I do so). Although I’ve always been a morning person, it took me about 2-3 months to get used to waking up this early. Anyone can become a morning person if they have enough dedication and discipline.
Q. Do you ever take a day off from exercise?
A. Absolutely. Without proper rest, we’re going to do more damage than good and we’re more prone to injury. Listen to your body, it knows best!
Q. Do you exercise at the gym or outdoors?
A. Both. During the week (Monday-Friday), I usually hit the gym, starting off my days with some weights and spin class. On the weekends when I have more free time, I like to take it outdoors with runs on the beach, occasional trips to the rock wall, swimming laps, etc.
Q. Are you a vegetarian/vegan?
A. I like to say that I am part-time vegetarian/vegan. I do not eat red meat or poultry because I strongly oppose U.S. slaughter practices and policies, but I do eat seafood on occasion. At home, I cook/bake vegan mainly for the reason that I find vegan cooking/baking to be fun, challenging, and experimental.
Q. What advice would you give to someone trying to adopt more of a vegetarian/vegan diet?
A. Just like with any change in your life, changing your diet is a process and will most definitely not happen overnight. My advice is to think about adding new foods and recipes to your diet rather than subtracting certain foods. Have fun with it and treat it as an experiment rather than a lifetime commitment. Take it one meal at a time and don’t think, “I can never eat filet mignon ever again” but rather, make the decision at each meal.
Q. Did you always have a passion for cooking/baking?
A. Surprisingly, I did not start cooking/baking until about two years ago when I stopped eating meat. I used to have very poor eating habits and once I decided it was time to make a positive change, I started to experiment in the kitchen and realized that I really loved it.
Q. What are some items that are always in your fridge/freezer/pantry?
A. You can find some of my food staples on this page.
