What is your favorite memory about being in the L.A. County Holiday Celebration?
My favorite memory about being in the L.A. County Holiday Celebration was working with my students every week during practice. It was a fun memory for all of us to be working together to put on a good performance for the people who would be watching. I enjoyed watching my students get excited over the performance and working with them on the dance.
What do you enjoy the most about performing in general?
What I love about performing is that it gives me the opportunity to share Korean culture with people who might otherwise never see or experience it. I love being able to show others how beautiful my culture and heritage is and also seeing the people in the audience smiling as they watch our team perform. It is fulfilling to see people enjoy our performance, because it makes all of the work we put in worth it.
If you could say one uplifting thing for L.A. and the people watching your video now, what would it be?
I hope that the Holiday Celebration continues for many, many years. It is a place that brings people from all over L.A. together, which is an amazing feat. I hope that people are able to watch these performances and open up to experiencing new things and different cultures.
