When I was in South Korea I did not like the place where I lived My fathers job as an agricultural researcher at the Rural Development Administration caused my family to live in a small agricultural town He wanted to stay with his job even though he had many chances to get better positions elsewhere I could not understand why he wanted to stay at such a rural place and work as a researcher I also did not like my school because I did not feel any academic challenges and motivations Most of the students there were absent during harvest seasons and they did not care much for their schoolwork I became depressed and felt hopeless which fueled my desire to leave the town The chance to leave the place presented itself when I became 17 years old Since Korea doesnt allow dual citizenship for people over 17 years old I had to choose one citizenship I had both US and Korean citizenships because I was born in the US while my father was earning his PhD My strong desire to leave the rural town forced me to select my US citizenship My parents wanted me to choose Korean citizenship but I chose the US citizenship in order to leave the place regardless of my parents opinion When I came to the US alone I had the most difficult time of my life because I had to learn English and adapt to a new place However I thought it was better than staying at an agricultural town that I did not like This summer two years after I came to the US I had a chance to visit Korea However when I arrived there I was very astonished My fathers crop experiment station a green house was a mess and people were working to restore it My father explained that a tornado struck two days ago and destroyed most of the crops Right after lunch
