My name is Shaquanda but you can call me Shay (My Roommate). I am a BFA graduate from Arcadia University and am currently an MFA student at Full Sail University.
My favorite colors are blue, black and red. I have a potty mouth and say the first thing that comes to my mind. My favorite Korean Food is Bulgogi. I visited Seoul, South Korea for 8 days in March of 2014 and studied abroad in mid-February to late-July 2016.
This time I am working as an English teacher to a class of wonderful rugrats (late-October 2017 ~)
My K-World Journey
I credit my roommate with introducing me to Korean Pop Culture. My love started with BIGBANG’s Fantastic Baby. I was introduced to EXO and SHINee next and from there I started watching Dramas. My first drama being Shut up and Let’s Go. I fell in love with the seemingly weird music and extremely dramatic shows almost immediately. I immersed myself in the culture and from then on I have been a goner. I now read fanfics and I even have ships. Originally I went to Arcadia with the intent of studying in Spain but I went to South Korea instead. I almost never want to leave when I am there and my obsession is all due to my roommate Aneesah. I thank her and am glad God brought us together. Because of her I now have the chance to broaden my horizons even more. I love it.
Shay’s K-World: Present
While I still wish to do reviews and such on Korean Pop Culture, my blog will take a new and improved (hopefully), turn. I will discuss what is like living in Korea as a Black woman with 4C hair, etc.
Join me for this journey!
