The #METOO movement struck a cord in me because, #METOO. I have had to endure countless times of sexual harassment without knowing what to do, or where to go next.
It wasn't until my friends encountered far worse situations that I started looking into ways to help them. However, I never actually thought of sharing this information with the world.
But here I am, the #metoo movement isn't just to share our stories, but also to swear alliance and to give out information for the world to see. Because together we are strong and together we can make a change.

Changing visa's is always stressful. Especially if you are not exactly sure what to do or what to drink. Thank god I have been able to stay on the same visa for the last 4 years and I only had to extend it once.
However the time has come and I am no longer a student, which means I also have to change my visa. The following is what I learned when I went to the immigration office (sept. 2017) to change from a D-2 student visa to a D-10 job seeking visa.

This morning I decided to do a livestream as part of #EVERYDAYMAY to answer some of the recent questions that were send to me on tumblr. I am still incredibly new with the whole livestreaming situation so the struggle was real in the beginning. Therefore I will give short summaries of the questions that were asked right here
Q1 What are the best, most fun, prettiest places to visit?
Another area I highly recommend if you want pretty places is Seongsu. The area itself is quite old and doesn't look that appealing however a new amazing looking coffee shops are popping up all over the place.
Q2 Any advice on transferring to a Korean school, tuition and scholarships?
Q3 How can I impove my Korean from a TOPIK level 2 to TOPIK level 4?
Q4 how can I improve my Korean Speaking level?

Don't we all have these childhood dreams, something we think about longingly before we stash it back in the corners corners of our brains. Maybe we will start once, or twice before we think to ourselves. "No, I can't do it."
We have to wait for that perfect moment, but what if that perfect moment never comes?
Today is the day that I am creating that perfect moment for myself; I am starting a journey to make my dreams become reality.
Dream number 1
