About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to make a good photo portfolio of europe

ABOUT ME

Oh gee this question is so packed.

To tell the latest ME, I am wondering around whole europe. This is my first shot here. I grew up in Asia, saw Asia, and was Asia. I was quiet expected much from the continent itself, and it turns out to be pretty good. I used to participate in a feminist-photography group (and I am still am). Photos were my biggest interest ever but I pushed them aside because it take much money and attention part from my works that I had to fulfill. Now I came back to photos here and enjoying a good time. A part from photos, I really want to be a Enlish teacher. But I feel some limitied abilities of mine as a non-native speaker. I wonder how others (I mean teachers or instructors) get over this.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I participated in a photo-exhibtion in the 5th Gay parade in Seoul. I worked 2 years as a volunteer teacher in a region of impoverished in Seoul. I sold some of my drawings while travelling.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am quite into taking photos. I am sure I can teach the most basics but not sure in the experts.

I can cook as good enough to make my friend WOW Korean dishes are easy to make, and they do have a special taste.

I am not a expert of feministic issues, but I worked as an interpreter once in an Asian feminist conference and I do pick up some of the part as my life philosophy. Someone who would discuss certain matters would be good.
