When I Talk to My Neighbors in Korean, They’re Amazed

I’m studying biochemistry at Los Angeles City College. As a kid, I watched murder mystery shows, so I always wanted to be a crime investigator.

Growing up in Koreatown gave me a better understanding of Korean culture. I even learned some Korean in high school to be able to communicate with my neighbors. When I talk to them in Korean, they are really amazed.
