Living in Seoul was an eye opening experience. “You will make new and interesting friends” her father said. But it was hard for a ten year old girl who was extremely shy. She missed her friends from San Antonio.

Learning a new language proved to be difficult. Her new friends wanted to learn her language too. She found a solution for both problems by giving videotaped English lessons for the Korean school system.

Looking back she realized this was the start of her broadcasting career.

“One minute to air, Nora”, boomed a voice in the background.

    What a wonderful way to begin her career! I like that she took something that could have been very scary and instead used it motivation. Great story!

    We all have to start somewhere, and sometimes without knowing where it will lead. Nice story.

    I had to look her up to know who she was. Impressive rise through the ranks!
