June 27 - I was fortunate to be invited as a speaker by Mary Connors and Dr. Sung Kim and meet the National Korean Studies Seminar held at the Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles. I enjoyed meeting the educators both Korean and non-Korean. People came to NKSS from Hawaii, Chicago, Michigan and many other places. This is a wonderful group who made the largest Gimbop I have ever seen. Chef Rock Hoon Kim came from Seoul to teach how to make a Party Gimbop - how cool was that!!
I wish I had more time to share the legacy of Dosan Ahn Chang Ho and his family. I highlighted a few of the many experiences the Ahn family encountered as basically the first Korean American family. I mentioned my halmoni Helen Ahn, Philip Ahn and my mother Susan Ahn Cuddy. I barely got into their stories. Is complicated to share the full story of the 140 year legacy which is filled with so many stories in 30 minutes. I opened up a few eyes with the information I was able to tell. I am grateful for this opportunity and appreciate all the attendees and the organizers for this meeting of good people. Education and knowledge are a constant in improving our lives.
I will be building this page trying to provide information and support about my talk today amd more about the Ahn and Cuddy legacy. If anyone from NKSS has any questions or comments please feel free to contct me. Cheers! firstname.lastname@example.org
