This book contains autobiographies by 12 individuals of Korean descent. However, their background experiences are vastly different. The editor of the book, Ariel Raimundo Choi, was born in Argentina and is still a citizen of Argentina; therefore, he considers himself a Hispanic-Korean-American. Ye One Chung grew up most of her life in Israel, so she considers Israel as her home. She writes a part of her autobiography in modern Hebrew, a language Ye One Chung is fluent at. Others in the book are fascinating in other ways. Andrew Kim is a published author of short stories. Theodore Kim tests tennis racquets for companies. Paul Sungbae Park was the first high school student to be a docent of an art museum in Closter, New Jersey. This book is also special in that this book contains essays by winners of the 2010 Global Rev. Ham Suk-Hyun Essay Contest, an international essay contest celebrating the life and work of Rev. Ham Suk-Hyun, who was a Nobel Peace Prize nominee and a tireless worker for democracy and freedom in Korea. A forward was written by Ariel Raimundo Choi's Catholic priest in Demarest, New Jersey, and also by Ariel Raimundo Choi's uncle, who has Doctor of Laws from Argentina and is an influential businessman in Argentina.
