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.
In 2012, 3% of the population in South Korea (SoKo) were foreigners; an even smaller percentage (of foreigners) were Black-Americans.

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.
