Funny how things work out. I actually just won the listserve at the end of February and talked about my thoughts on time, my transition to studying abroad in Australia, and finally my move great city of San Francisco with my girlfriend, Hana. Well, 10 months and a lifetime full of memories in Southeast Asia later, here I am, writing to all of you from the Bay Area.
I want to start by writing about my girlfriend because she has really inspired to me lately. After watching fashion blogging stars like Weylie and Michelle Phan (shout out if ya’ll read this!) she decided she wanted to pursue her passion for fashion through creating her own YouTube channel. Rather than worrying over the fact that she had no previous filming or editing experience, she just jumped head first into the world of YouTube and fashion blogging. She has spent countless hours honing her skills and, in 4 short months, has almost reached her initial goal of 1,000 subscribers! I figured since 2015 isn’t over yet, I’d toss my hat into the ring for boyfriend of the year award by sharing her channel with all of you. Despite being the “Instagram Husband” behind her videos, I seriously couldn't be more proud of her and how far she’s come. I also really appreciate anyone who takes the time to check out how talented she is :D

Hana’s YouTube: since I can't add links :( you can find her by searching for Hana Lee on YouTube!
As for myself, I was inspired by Hana to take a product management course at General Assembly. I’m currently in a rotational program trying to figure out what I want to do with my life and lately I’ve been leaning towards product management. The idea of building something new, something that could change the lives of others is just too appealing, no matter how unrealistic that might be. That said, I’m also looking to get more involved in the startup scene in San Francisco and meet entrepreneurs who are putting in the hustle day in and day out. If that’s you then I’d love to hear more about what you are doing!
I’ll end my 2nd moment of fame the same way I ended my first, with an open invitation. I’m still fairly new to San Francisco, so if you’re ever in the mood for a free drink (coffee, beer, pick your poison), I’d love to meet you!
