Meet My Friend!


I interviewed my good friend Munkhzul, who also goes by the name Owen. She was one of my first Mongolian friends here and she has helped me so much. I am so excited for you to get to know her! 

What is your full name?:

My full name is Munkhzul Purev.

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

I live in center of Ulaanbaatar in an apartment. It is a nice apartment, and I have my own room.

What is your family like?:

I live with my parents and my younger sister. My parents run a private business, and my sister is a student. She is five years younger than me, but we get along quite well.

How do you get around?:

I mostly walk or my sister drives me around; sometimes I get around by cab. My work has a company bus that takes us from the center of the city to the office and back again. 

What types of clothing do you like to wear?:

I like to wear comfortable clothes! Lots of jeans and loose tops when I am not at work. My favorite brands are Zara and Uniqlo, but these can be hard to find and expensive to buy in Mongolia. 

What do you like to do in your free time?:

I mostly eat good food and bring my nieces to the playground or help them study. I also like to stay home and read a good book.
