Hey there, I am Bryan KeunYoung Chang (장근영).
I thinks it’s weird and funny (thanks a bunch, though) that you are about to learn about ME, a typical college kid with an atypically huge dream and naively robust faith. Anyway, here’s who and what I am:
Born and raised in Seoul, Korea until August 2004. Went to high school in Twin Cities, MN; at the same time, studied full-time at University of Minnesota–Carlson School of Business for 2 years. finished college math courses while in high school through University of Minnesota Talented Youth Mathematics Program (UMTYMP).
Now, I am a undergraduate student studying Business-economics at UCLA. Currently being a part-time student and working first internship at Stelliam Corporation (entrepreneurial real estate investment firm) since Spring 2009. That opened my eyes to the world of real estate (investment), which I believe is one of the most interesting segments. I am and will be in the continuous process of learning– from my boss a.k.a mentor, books, blogs, seminars, and whatever it is to enlighten me.
My entrepreneurial flame got lightened at a small event thrown by my business frat, Alpha Kappa Psi. The guest speaker Jun Loayza spoke about entrepreneurship and social media. I know he is a great passionate speaker. Fascinated by the lifestyle he described I felt I must pusue the very core spirit of mine–entrepreneurship. I talked with him briefly after event, got his business card, and went on his blog. That’s when I met the social media and the kingdom of Gen-Y. I was again enlightened. I started reading posts on and off, but got into it religiously serious since July 09.
I fully regret that I found out this world of social media and blogosphere not too long ago. But really lucky to get into this world now. I will be blunt now (to you and to myself): If you think it is late, it REALLY is late. Nonetheless, it’s the time you embark when it is really late, but not yet over. I finally start my blog and am so glad. I know there are infinite great blogs out already; hopefully my really-late-but-not-deadly blog will jump into that categorie.
Here, you will find a lifestory of a typical college kid with atypically humungous dreams and naively firm faith; thoughts and on-going lessons on following subjects: real estate (investment), entrepreneurship, minimalism, (maybe) a bit of style (not fashion).
then, Nolja 놀자! (meaning “let’s have fun” in Korean)
Maybe you have already found that I am not a good writer. I have not been a reading/writing type of person. But I have a gut to overcome that fear and criticisms. F that. I am fully confident of myself and my great skill — learning fast. Although it took me absurdly long time to write this post, this is the start and I know I will conquer this writing skill, and will be comfortable. Thanks again for reading all this
