Hi, I’m Wondra. I am an immigrant from Korea, the country which became famous in recent years for K-Pop, K-Drama, and K-Beauty. I came to America when I was 24. I have now lived in the United States longer than I ever lived in Korea, yet I speak with an accent. I married an American man (then divorced that American man 22 years later, but that’s a different story) and had two children, who are now adults and have children of their own. I have 6 grandchildren between my two kids and am happily remarried. I live in San Antonio, near downtown. I prefer living in a large metropolitan city as it reminds me of Seoul. In this blog, I will share with you stories from my life growing up in Korea as well as my journey as an immigrant in the United States.
