On this edition of Cultural Compass, host Tara Braun highlights students’ transition from South Korea to the United States!

Tara is accompanied by guests Seyoung Lee, Sol Kim, and faculty member Bijaya “BJ” Arcarya. Each guest reveals their personal journey to the U.S and provides some insight on their new American lifestyle.

Seyoung Lee starts off the show with a sense of humor revealing that her American name “Blair” originated off the American Drama “Gossip Girl”! Sol Kim later states her American name is “Ashley” and Bijaya’s nickname is “BJ.”

The students all agree that their hardest challenge adjusting to the American culture was the food, combined with smiling while speaking to strangers in a friendly atmosphere! Nevertheless, Lee states that the American ways of life are vastly different from those of South Korea.
