About “A Different Kind of South”

Hi. I’m Sarah. Welcome to A Different Kind of South. 

That’s me in the middle (May 2012).

I’m a 2012 Georgetown College (Georgetown, Kentucky) graduate with a major in English (grades 5-12 teaching certification) and a minor in religion. I’m also a 2012-2013 Fulbright Fellow to South Korea and an English Teaching Assistant (ETA).  I grew up in the gateway to the American South and now, I’m  living in South Korea. From the American South to South Korea, I’m truly living in a different kind of South.

I’m a third-order Benedictine postulant (preparing to become a third-order nun) with a love for education, Medieval English literature,   literature of the American South, dystopian fiction, The Twilight Zone, Christian mysticism, and theology. After my Fulbright year, I intend to attend graduate school to pursue studies in literature, education, or library science. One day, I’ll have my Ph.D. in English.

Until then, this is A Different Kind of South, and these are the stories of my year as a Fulbright Fellow to Korea.
