"This book of autobiographies by Korean middle school students is something that is needed for Korean studies and Korean American studies, in my opinion. Because this book contains our voices, this book is very powerful. In a sense, we are documenting our own history. Because our lives are like the lives of other middle school students who are Koreans, I believe that this book contains an important history for everyone who reads this book. I hope that teachers in middle school, high school, and college will read this book, so that they could understand their Korean students better. Koreans who have contributed to this book come from different backgrounds. Joseph Park is a recent immigrant to the United States, and his father is a regional editor of a big Korean newspaper in the New York and New Jersey area. Andrew Mun is a Tae Kwon Do master in his own right, and he is the son of a very famous Tae Kwon Do master, who has the biggest Tae Kwon Do dojang in Bergen County, New Jersey. Andrew's mother is a famous hairdresser in the Korean community and her hair salon in Palisades Park, New Jersey, is always packed. My mother does her hair there and loves it. Brandon Woo is a saxophone player whose parents support him in everything that he wants to do. Brandon Woo's parents own a famous Korean restaurant, called Do Ka Bi. I just love their logo, which is in Brandon's autobiography. The food is great, so if you are in mood for some Korean food, you should definitely visit Do Ka Bi Korean Restaurant in Leonia, New Jersey, which is right by the Leonia Post Office. All of them and I have shared our lives with you and I hope that you will find much that will be interesting for you." (From the Book Introduction)
