What’s up everyone!? Hope your Monday is off to a productive start 😎:

Welcome to my first Q&A video! I asked my YouTube community along with my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter friends to send me any questions that they have regarding life in Korea, teaching English in Korea, or anything they felt like asking. I was delighted to receive a wide range of questions, from tips for learning Korean to asking about my future plans for staying in Korea. I didn’t get a chance to answer every question that I received in this video, so I will certainly be releasing a part II in the upcoming weeks.

I could honestly say that I was challenged with these sets of questions. Questions such as “Who were the most influential people in your life?” and “What were some of your greatest successes and failures?” really allowed me to think about answers that were true to who I am and true to my experiences. Just to give a bit of a preview in to the some of the content in the video, I’ll briefly share my answer to the question of “Why do you stay so positive?” I’m happy to know that I seem to give off a “positive vibe” in my videos and I strive to be the same off camera as well. As I mentioned in the video, my positive outlook on life has been an ongoing development in my life for years. I’ve had examples like my father, who before he passed, would never complain about anything. I’ve seen him go through ups and downs, and always kept a positive attitude. I am constantly reminded of how he carried himself, which is one of the reasons why I choose to look at the glass half full. That doesn’t mean that I don’t recognize the fact that the glass is half empty, but I’ve learned that your perspective can shape your life for the better, or for worse. And having a negative perspective has never helped anyone achieve their fullest potential and get the most out of life.

So that’s a glimpse into some of the answers that I’ve shared in the video. Check it out for more questions and my responses!
