Hello and welcome to my college/business/lifestyle/entertainment blog!
I created Serenaome.com to share with you info about college, business, life, and, of course, Korea and Japan (I just love their culture and entertainment world)!
This is not your typical blog, but if you are looking for a place to learn about the topics above, you’ll find something for you. 😉
I’ve been dying to share what I’ve learned with others, and I figured a blog was the platform to do that.
As a first generation college student I didn’t know a thing about college. Furthermore, I was raised in a different country, and only did my last 3 years of high school in the states –it was an interesting transition. With only my passion for knowledge and desire to succeed I managed to get a finance my education with a combination of federal and state grants in conjunction with various scholarships. Four years later, I graduated with a double major in Marketing and Computer Information Systems, Magna Cum Laude.
Along the way I learned tips and tricks of the trade and also ways in which I could’ve done things differently –better. I’m here to help you not make the same mistakes, take full advantage of your student status and make the best of your college experience.
Aside from college, I also want to share with you some of my passions such a KPOP, K-Dramas, JMUSIC, Anime… and more! Not only will I share with you info about the aforementioned topics, but also make recommendations, and introduce you more to the Korean & Japanese cultures. On the flip side, I get to learn more along the way!
Sure College and Asia are awesome, but I also wish to teach others the various things I’ve learned along the way pertaining to business, life, technology, etc. I’m no expert, but I believe we all have something we could teach to others, and I want to teach you a little of what I’ve learned in hopes that knowledge makes a positive impact in your life.
Oh, so you want to know where the name Serenaome came from?
Well, it’s a very uninteresting story. I was 13 when I needed to create an email account for one thing or another. As I pondered on a good username, I gave myself the challenge of not using numbers or special characters, just because I wanted to be unique that way. Combining the names of 2 of my favorite anime characters (Serena –Sailor Moon, and Kagome or Aome –in Spanish– from InuYasha) Serenaome was born.
Very original, wouldn’t you agree?
Why is the blog so diverse?
I grappled with this question for a very long time, trying to narrow it down to just one or two topics, but I simply couldn’t. Going against what I’ve learned from various experienced bloggers, who mainly recommended choosing a niche, I decided to take the plunge and go for it, because these are my passions.
Whether the blog will be successful or not, only time will tell.
