I’m Connie and I’m a tall girl in a big world.
I’m from Manchester in the UK, and I’m living in Seoul, South Korea.
I moved to Korea to teach at a university and to learn what I can do to help change the current standard of mental well being in South Korea, especially amongst young people and students. You can read more about my thoughts regarding mental health, and the written work of others, at www.celebratinglittlevictories.com a secondary blog page I manage, edit and write for.
I also volunteer at different organisations to learn about how education is (or should be) different depending on the age, learning style, ability or capability of the student. I occasionally make YouTube videos too so please do feel free to check my videos out as well.
Oh and if you’re curious why I chose ‘connieunkiga‘ as my internet identity, please click this link here and get to know me a little bit more.
While mental health and mental well being is at the core of what I do, that isn’t all I talk about. I am learning Korean, slowly and I love the theatre, books, art, poetry, music, food but, most of all, I enjoy telling stories.
If you have any feedback, or if you just want to say hi, please do leave a comment or contact me through my social media links or even check out my Contacts page to send me an email.
