  1. Hi…I just read your article about the Black American experience abroad. I had a few questions I wanted to ask (if you wouldn’t mind, can you reply via email):

    1. I’m interested to traveling to S. Korea to teach abroad, but I have some concerns. As a social blogger I felt you might be able to shine some light on them.
    2. Were there any issues that have occurred being a black woman in a racially homogeneous country?
