As a Kid, I WAS THE BLACK SHEEP!!
Growing up, I never felt like I fit in with other Korean Americans.
I never really fit in with the aZn crowd, the “super academic” crowd, or the “fob” crowd.
The one that really hurt the most tho, is the fact that I never felt seen and understood by other Korean Americans.
I grew up in the inner city of Chicago.
My grandma got super into this one church hella out in the burbs and dragged me to all the church-related things until she passed away when I was 8.
My parents decided they should continue attending this church bc of the community and they forced me to go through high school.
I fuckin’ hated it.
The other Korean American kids rejected me bc I wasn’t like them. They treated me like I was poor and beneath them.
That affected me for a really long time.
This followed me through college. I really wanted to connect with Korean Americans there, too.
Nope. Didn’t happen there either.
I could never figure out what it was.
I had other Asian American friends, but always felt rejected by my “own people”.
As a matter of fact, I was always a bit of a black sheep in all phases of my life.
Can you relate?
I’ve done a lot of work to overcome these feelings of rejection… Like unpacking old stories, building dope relationships with my Asian American clients, and making new Asian American friends as an adult. I WAS SO DONE BEING THE BLACK SHEEP.
The biggest healing I experienced around this was when I finally visited Korea for the first time as an adult.
The Koreans fucking looooove me there, OMG. I’ve never felt so seen in my damn life.
This process made me realize that while my experiences around rejection were totally real as a kid, I have the power to rewrite and heal at any moment.
Holding space for this program is an extension of my own healing work. I know there are others like me out there.
I’ve never been one to fit in with the rest of the crowd and I’ve realized that is part of my path. That is my purpose — to pave the way for other creatives, misfits, game changers, and rule-breakers.
If you’re ready to own this about yourself too, then I will make sure to guide the shit out of you through this 8-week process.
I’m curating a group of folks who are kind, open, and dope AF. You will feel so seen and understood by the end of my program.
That in itself will be life-changing.
Please book a call if this resonates. I’m all about starting the conversation <3
