Did You Know...

Youngtae Shin had the sweetest and most aristocratic daughter called Dori. She was bilingual and was a cat (now residing in Heaven), but she did not know she was a cat, in spite of her extraordinary intelligence.

Every major juncture in Korean history touched her family directly dating back to 918 A.D. - want to know more details? Contact me.

She worked as a RN, an excellent one (until the electronic technology took over) and supported her husband through his PhD and her own while raising two daughters.

What she is most proud of: Her two grown daughters.
