During the Great Recession, Veronica Chung remained steadfast on the finding a job that allowed her to do what she loved. When she realized her passion (traveling) and what she was best at (working with children), she applied the JET (Japanese Exchange and Teaching) Progam. Regardless of her lack of abilities and experience, she was inexplicably accepted.
The first book of Chung’s memoir series, “Be Love,” is about the first year of her transformational journey while teaching English in rural Japan. In addition to dealing with issues most face when moving alone to a country where one doesn’t know the language, she is also forced to face her own personal version of hell. Despite the odds, Chung effectively takes the morals and advice she seeks in order to transform herself and inspire those around her.
