I chose my own name “Chris” from the Internet because I was not born in America, and my real name, Jaehyun, seemed too hard to pronounce here. When I used to live in England, I used my real name, and my friends had quite a lot of trouble saying it and getting used to it. Therefore, I decided that I would choose my own name. I got to choose my own name after searching “good american names” on Google.I looked down the list, and there were names like Jacob and Max, but I liked Chris the most so I chose to go by it. Not many kids get to choose their own name, which is why it was a happy experience for me. Many of my friends envy me when I tell them I got to choose my own name, so it was kind of unique and fun.
