Beom Gu

My name is Beom Gu Yeo, and I’m from South Korea. I came here about 20 years ago after I graduated high school.

I was born in a very happy family. I was the first kid and I have a younger sister who has two sons and a daughter now. My dad passed away when I was 10 years old but my mom is very healthy and she always tries to make her best life with our family.

When I came to the U.S to study, it was my wild time. I was kind of a free spirit out of the fence. I enjoyed life in a new world and with new friends. I knew the adult things such as drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes. I didn’t study at all.

After about 10 years, I acknowledged that I am not young any more. I acknowledged that I can make money and I have to be responsible all of my life. I have a job which is realtor and I have been in the real estate field for more than 15 years now very successfully.
