Yumiís Biography
Let me start from my childhood thatís far away from here. The land of the morning calm, I was born in Seoul, Korea. I was raised in a loving family who taught me all the morals and ethics that I now cherish in life. I lived in Seoul for thirteen years. I was a tomboy, didnít even have one Barbie doll. Climbing trees and poles or running around the neighborhood was my typical daily routine after school. I lived with an extended family of parents, grandparents and cousins. I didnít even know what the word privacy meant until my family decided to move all the way to the other side of the world. Then all of a sudden, I moved to this crazy and exciting place called the United States. Besides learning English, adapting to a new culture was one of the toughest things I had to go through but it was exhilarating as well. I wanted so much to prove to people that I was capable of learning and speaking the English language well and dismissing the language barrier between my classmates and I. So I joined the track team. I was a long distance runner and I have a pleasant memory because I developed a competitive fire and a love for sports that remains with me until this day. I enjoy a broad spectrum of sports but the most beloved by me is basketball. I love to watch the NCAA tournament and the NBA as well. I also get very excited during the Olympics and especially the World Cup. Besides my love for sports, Iíve recently taken an interest in modeling. I really didnít think about it seriously until I decided to add some spice and excitement to my life. I thought to myself why not me. So far it has been fun, just a little difficult on my spare time between my busy school schedule and this newfound career move. I value education a great deal and realize that modeling is not a life long career for most. I am studying Electrical Engineering at the present and would someday like to work in the design side of engineering. I have an enormous love for creating things and being innovative. Well, getting into more fun stuff, a perfect day for me would be having a huge juicy steak, Korean cuisine or sushi. I love to eat good food. It is one of my favorite things to do in life. I eat like a horse and sometimes I eat until I can hardly breath. Then I would catch a flick with my close friends afterwards. I usually watch a movie when Iíve had a hard day or simply to escape the realities of life. Then to finish out my day, I love spending time and playing with my two kitties. They are so dear to me and I donít know what I would do without them. I firmly feel that life is what you make of it. I believe in living life to the fullest. Our time on this earth is very precious. When I think of all the things I have yet to do and all the places Iíve yet to see I realize that Iíve been blessed with good health and the opportunity to live on this earth at an exceptionally exciting time with an ever-changing environment. Itís very fulfilling and gratifying to experience this journey with you all. I would like to thank all of you for your continued support and kind words of encouragement. It means a great deal to me and I am very appreciative of all of my wonderful fans. Lots of Love,
