I’m Brittany! Anyway, I’m 21 and I am an honors level college student.
I am working towards what will eventually be either an Asian Studies degree or a Korean degree with a strong history background. I adore history and I want to study Korean history more than most things in this world.
For my future career I’m trying to decide between law school or becoming a post-secondary teacher at this moment. I want to be in a career where I can use what I learn in my education for my job. Teaching others what I love seems most ideal for this.
Last but not least I want to study in Korea, even if only for a semester. I’ve played with the idea of becoming an English teacher in Korea but I don’t think I’d be as satisfied doing that as I would with continuing my education and teaching what I love to people that may not even know that there is a North AND South Korea and only one of them is ruled by Kim Jung-Il. I’m an optimist in that sense, because I assume some of those people would take a Korea related class.

Why South Korea?
…This is hard to explain. I was told that learning a langauge improves grades (true, by the way) and me being the person I am decided to learn one. I learned to read Korean and I don’t remember exactly how that happened. Around the same time I found BoA. I believe I was 13 at the time because I have flashes in my memory of me going “Oh, I have to learn a language now! This language thing doesn’t after 13!” I don’t think I made the 13 year old deadline but I was definitely reading basic Korean at 14 but I didn’t bother to do much other than learning to read. I didn’t learn vocabulary.
Little did I know this little language would come back to haunt me in a big way not too long later.
My interest in Kpop grew and now here I am.
Kind of vague, sorry! Korea was largely by chance I guess is the moral of the story.
