Chronicling the glorious indignities of motherhood since 2005
Julie Kang was born in Seoul and traded her Korean language skills for a Valley Girl accent when her family settled in southern CA. Often described as "too big for the room," Julie brings shame upon her ancestors daily with her unconventional humor and potty mouth. She writes for Geisha School Dropout, her personal blog, Kimchi Mamas, a consortium of women raising Korean American children, and The Nerds of Color, a site about fandom through a cultural lens. She is a vocal advocate for work-life balance and mental health awareness in the Asian American community. She lives in Long Beach with her husband and two children.
