Q and A with Terri from Korea, raised in Virginia, and living in Los Angeles, CA
“They’re just thoughts, yet we often let them define us, hold us back, shape our reality, etc.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I love marketing. Marketing and entrepreneurship is so fascinating to me. I love psychology and how it plays into marketing and sales. I love connecting brands with their customers and watching lives change because of it. I love helping people tell their story through marketing. It is definitely my gift. I also love to help people realize their potential. I love to help them see a new perspective that assists in their elevation. I’m always going to work with entrepreneurs and businesses, but I do have a new project I’m working on that’s for kids and I am beyond excited. I cannot wait to share more of it!
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: My younger years definitely shaped who I am today. My mom is Korean and my dad is black, so I grew up navigating two cultures. For me growing up biracial was the best thing ever. I was always proud of both sides of me, and I could fit in anywhere and get along with everyone. I believe it also help me understand others more because I was exposed to so many different cultures very young. I am the first in my immediate family to go to college and become a business owner. I think the best thing about my childhood is I always marched to the beat of my own drum, and I had the will inside me to never give up. There’s always a way. I see how that helps me now as an adult and I’m grateful for that.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: Learn to think your thoughts. We don’t realize how many thoughts we think that don’t serve us. They’re just thoughts, yet we often let them define us, hold us back, shape our reality, etc. Mental health and strength must be learned, as well as emotional intelligence. When you learn to think your thoughts and move with only what serves your highest good, you will feel a peace inside that compares to nothing else in the world. When you find that true connection within, you feel whole and loved! It takes practice, but it is is so worth it!
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: To be bold and brave and be whoever it is you want to be, unapologetically.
