SoKoDiaries: An American Teacher Living in South Korea
In 2012, three percent of the population in South Korea (SoKo) were foreigners; an even smaller percentage (of the foreigners) were Black-Americans. As a Black-American woman living in SoKo during that time, culture shock was not the only thing Nailah had to overcome. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Nailah's temporary stay in an urban-rural Korean city was an unique experience. But that was not the only unique experience. Nailah's SoKo journey was filled with many contrastingly pleasant memories. From being pushed in line by older Korean women, to being known in her city as "Reggae Hair" because of her dreadlocks, it's all written in here.
