Episode 07: Mark Wilson

Mark Wilson, 31, is a Korean-American adoptee who has lived in Korea for the past six years. Wilson grew up as a typical suburban kid but struggled with feelings of fitting in and dealing with racism on his own in his almost all white town. At college, he befriended some Korean foreign exchange students and started to feel accepted as an ethnic Korean by his new friends. He also spent time as a youth counselor at a camp run by an adoption agency. Those experiences convinced him to return to and discover Korean for himself. Wilson shares some humorous and touching stories about his life here.
