Ayani Daily Life


My daily life here in Korea is so different to my life in the United States. However, home is never far from my throughts while living overseas, and I thought it would be a neat comparison to write about both of my "lives" side-by-side in this piece!

What is your full name?:

My full name is Ayani Altamirano

Where do you live? What is your house like?:

In the United States, I live in Central Florida. I am originally from Polk County, then after graduating from high school I moved to Orlando for college. In Orlando I've lived both in school dorms and in apartments. Here in Korea, I've stayed in an International Students dorm in Seoul. We have our own beds and desk space, but all the beds are in one room. There's a laundry room and kitchen that we share on each floor.

What is your family like?:

Back home I have my two parents and three younger brothers. All my brothers are teenagers (18,17,15). We all have different and distinct interests such as music, movies, fitness and science. 

How do you get around?:

In the United States, I get around by car. Here, in Seoul I only walk and use the subway.

What types of clothing do you like to wear?:

I like to wear what's comfortable and meets styles that I like. I love thrift shopping and finding unique and fun jewelry.
