In the following interview, 20-year-old Kawon “Jenny” Kim tells her story of living in three different countries. She was born in Seoul, South Korea in 1993, but her family moved to Guadalajara, Mexico when she was in the first grade.

Jenny shares that after returning to Seoul to visit a couple of years ago, it was evident to her that the time she spent away from that culture had made her feel like a foreigner in her own country, but that she never quite felt at home in Mexico either. She lived in Guadalajara for 12 years, and she is now a freshman at Suffolk University studying psychology. This is her story.

 About this post: “The Story In Between” is a blog dedicated to interviewing immigrants and sharing their stories.
