I grew up in both the Asian and American worlds. I know a lot about Korean culture — from K-Pop, K-drama, K-movies, and K-culture to all the Korean Waves. I've lived in different places (San Diego, Washington DC, Orange County, Seoul, and now Berkeley) which has helped me to build an open mind and respect for all perspectives. My passion for dancing brought me to Berkeley. Dancing from an early age until now, I have been trained in K-pop, Hip-Hop, Choreography, Improvisation, Latin, Modern, Ballet, and the fusion of all of them in Korea and America. Honestly, I've had a lot of struggles as a dancer (and still have them), but one thing I cannot give up in my life is performing. Above all, I love to help others, so don't hesitate to send me an email!
