Nailah Harvey lives in Los Angeles, California as an indie author and copywriter. When not writing her next book, Nailah teaches authors and bloggers how to #LookBetterInWriting with grammar & writing resources on her educational website (www.nharv.com). Nailah's greatest adventure was living & teaching overseas in South Korea--where she began her "SoKoDiaries Book Series."
As author Nailah Harvey transitioned into the third decade of her life, she reflected over the years past. This self-help book hones in on the author's golden years: a decade filled with lessons, failures and success stories. Although everyone can learn from Nailah's advice, she dedicates this book to the anxious overzealous young adults who are trying to live life in their 20s.
Confessions Of An Adult Nerd celebrates the nerdy, yet eccentric life of a single 25-year-old English teacher named Halian. Somewhat tormented by her own clumsiness and obsession with libraries, Halian’s whimsical personality is put to the test when she meets the guy she didn't necessarily pray for. This guy is out of her league…or so she thinks.
Can you imagine eating kimchi—a spicy cabbage—for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Nailah experienced this and many other things while on her seasonal journey in Eastern Asia. Enjoy the ride as she takes you on an “ethnically homogeneous” roller coaster through “The Land of the Morning Calm,” also known as South Korea.
Nailah’s first two books are a compilation of journals from her three-month journey in South Korea: the good, the bad and the ugly. As the third volume in the SoKoDiaries Book Series, “Reverse Culture Shock” speaks about Nailah’s life after diving back into the routine of her native country (United States) after being immersed in “the Asian culture” for a season.
In 2012, 3% of the population in South Korea (SoKo) were foreigners; an even smaller percentage (of foreigners) were Black-Americans. As a Black-American woman living in SoKo during that time, culture shock was not the only thing Nailah had to overcome. From being pushed in line by older Korean women, to being known in her city as "Reggae Hair" because of her dreadlocks, it's all written in here.
