안녕하세요! Hello! Welcome to my blog!
My name is Natasha. I’ve been really interested in Korean culture since about 2007. Interested in kind of an understatement. I’ve been OBSESSED. My friends and family think I’m crazy, but I love Korea!
In 2010 during the Spring and Summer semesters of my Sophomore year, I lived out my dream of living 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 video 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!
