Kristen Kish:

00:02 --> 00:05

My heritage has always been a little bit of a mystery to me.

00:09 --> 00:12

I was born in Seoul, South Korea.

00:12 --> 00:14

I was adopted at 4 months old.

00:14 --> 00:18

I never understood it until I had something to relate myself to.

00:20 --> 00:31

I mean my mother is not Korean and here she is doing everything that she knows how, to put these things in front of my face to say, “hey, this is also a part of you too.”

00:32 --> 00:47

Looking back on it, it was a huge part of my life and it's a huge part of who I am, but more of what I am is my upbringing and it's my upbringing that really created my history that ultimately gave me a story to tell.
