Traveler Bio

Ahn-nyong-ha-se-yo! Hello everyone! My name is Anne Caelle. I was born and raised in Haiti and have been living in the U.S. for over 10 years. Currently, I live in New Jersey and just recently graduated college with a degree in communication media and film. I am interested in learning about and working in media, which is how I got hooked on Korean culture. Through listening to K-pop and watching K-dramas, I fell in love with the language, food and culture.

Last year, I had the pleasure of spending four months in South Korea, where I learned a lot about the Korean entertainment and media industry. Media in all forms has played a major role in various aspects of my life. It helped me learn to speak English, for example, and right now, it's how I explore the world in the midst of a global pandemic. I'm so excited to revisit my experiences in Seoul with you!
