With those skills, she illustrated three self published children's books as well as created her online art business. Ae began her bookselling journey at Books-a-Million and continues it here at Novel. She also spent a year in South Korea teaching English and learning all about Korean culture. Her favorite genres to read are Mystery and Intermediate fiction. 

Ae's favorite pastimes are art, reading, video games, anime and pop culture, studying languages (she aims to be a polyglot), and scrolling for endless hours on TikTok.
