Who is itsakoolife? Me! I’m the one in this picture who looks different than the others. The rest of those handsome guys are my clan. Together, we are the Koo family.
My name is Rebecca Koo and I break the rule of a well-known publishing guru who says not to write about yourself. However, in my defense, I am not so sure what my readers come here for is to hear about me. I think they come here to find someone who relates to them.
On my good days, I can put into words what many people experience but have trouble articulating. We are all human, and while I spent a large portion of my life trying to deny the reality of the human experience, now I am completely enamored by it.
I am fascinated and riveted when I hear a song or read an article or listen to a story that poignantly captures the truth of someone’s relatable human experience. Because we are all here together and it is so beautifully wonderful not to feel alone.
In this world of mind-blowing technology, I find myself in search of more heart and soul. I appreciate good wit, to be sure, but I need honesty, vulnerability, and depth to truly satisfy and keep me coming back for more.
So that is what I aim to offer here. Some heart, some soul, some imperfect and yet oddly beautiful humanity for my readers. Feel free to let me know what you think and what you experience in my writing. I am always looking to learn more about myself and others.
