안녕하세요! Hello! Welcome to my blog!
My name is Natasha. And I live in Korea!
In 2010 during the Spring and Summer semesters of my Sophomore year, I did a student exchange in Seoul, South Korea. I studied Korean at Yonsei University, one of the top three universities in South Korea. During my stay I started this blog (previously titled ‘Natasha in Seoul’) as a way to communicate with my friends and family back home. I updated this blog regularly, including many photos and occasionally videos of my life in Korea. I wanted to show my friends and family back home that their misconceptions about Korea were wrong and that Korea is an amazing country. (I have since made a lot of those blogs private because they were more like diary entries. However, many are still public!)
In December 2014 I completed my Masters in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and shortly after applied to teach English in Korea through EPIK. I was accepted as a middle school teacher in Busan. I have been in Korea since August 2015 and am loving it! I try to update my blog as much as possible to share my new adventures in Busan and as a teacher in Korea with my family, friends, and future EPIK applicants.
I hope you enjoy my blog! Please subscribe to receive e-mail updates when I upload a new post. Lastly, feel free to contact me with any questions you have!
