Miss Earth Korea 2017

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD)
I was born in Geoje Island, Korea which is the second biggest island in the country. It is regarded as a province and for that, I was able to enjoy my childhood in the nature itself. Every Sunday, I went out fishing with my father in a small boat my family had. Also, at time to time, I climbed a mountain behind my house with my dog. During summer, my family swam in the sea nearby my house and had dinner with a fresh fish my father had caught.

When I reached 11 years old, I immigrated to the Iloilo, Philippines. I was once again exposed to the different kind of environment. With the banana tree, I lied down on the sofa in the parking area of my house enjoying the fresh night breeze. Sometimes I just stared at the window looking at the sunset which just painted the whole sky into passionate red. At that time, smart phones just had begun to trend so I just focused on learning the new environment.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
My family is very traditional one where the father side live in with the parents. For that, my grandmother and I share the same room. My family is composed of 5 members: grandmother, father, mother, older brother, and me. Also, we love animals in a way we have raised rabbits, chickens, ducks, hamsters, goats, dogs, and cats.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
I went to an orphanage to celebrate my friend’s birthday. One of my Filipino friends held his party at the orphanage near his house and shared the foods and gifts to the children. Celebrating his birthday, we hugged and played with the kids.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF THE COUNTRY YOU ARE REPRESENTING?
It is very historical country and a proud one. We have never been a strongest, yet we never lost our identity. Korea is a beautiful country with an environment so firm that the beauty of it is unexplainable.

I also love the language we speak and write. It started from the love of the king towards the people. It is a scientific and unique language where the phonetics are based on the pronunciation and the position of the tongue.

Lastly, I love the kindness of the people. Koreans love to share and care. They love to give and are always free to help.

WHAT TRIVIA ABOUT YOURSELF WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
I am a human ambassador and a bridge connecting two countries: Korea and the Philippines. I know both cultures and I consider them as loves of my own. And I hope to be a bigger one that influence the Earth.
