No Spicy Food, Please...

Her name is Huiju Kim and they call her 'Huiju'. Not 'Kim'? "Oh no!" There are so many 'Kims' in South Korea," she says with a laugh. A Computer Science graduate from Seoul University, Huiju came to India as an exchange student, three years back to pursue higher studies. "Most Koreans don't know India well, but I liked India, especially Bangalore. It's a nice place," she says. She studied at Aptech in Pune for a year doing a course in e-commerce. After completing her course she got a job at the Aptech Software Division in Koramangala, worked there for a year and then came to Icode, eight months ago as a translator.

She admits her English isn't all that fluent. At the university they learn to read and write and since everyone speaks the local Korean language - Hangul, opportunities to converse in English weren't easy to come by. Most of what she knows she learnt in India. We found her English to be rather fluent, though a bit halting. You should hear our milkman speak English. Anyway, Huiju never imagined she'd get to work in a company in Bangalore. Besides, Bangalore had more opportunities for those inclined towards IT.

Somewhere at the back of Huiju's mind there's a wind blowing. Which way she doesn't know as yet. "Now I'm young. I want to get experience and coming to India has provided me with an opportunity to learn," comes a confident reply from Huiju. She looks herself as a sort of trendsetter for other Koreans to come here, work here and gain experience. And of course, learn English as well. "In Korea, infrastructure is very strong. But software isn't," she adds. Systems Administration is one area she's looking at but still isn't sure. "I'm thinking about it," muses Huiju. She mentions that developing fluency in English is important, since it's now an essential requirement especially for those in IT.

Huiju likes her assignment at Icode and doesn't feel out of sorts because the atmosphere at Icode is extremely friendly. So long as spicy food is not shoved down her throat, she's okay, bubbling with enthusiasm.
