My name is Imomoemi and here is a bit about me.
I am Nigerian born, California raised and Korean resident by choice. I moved to South Korea a year after graduating from university to teach English. I started out teaching in a public middle school in Incheon and that lasted 3 years. My next job took me to Icheon to teach Korean soldiers and that lasted for 1.5 years and now I am teaching at a university in Seoul. This is where I've been for the last 3 years. Now, on top of teaching university kids, I am now running Happy Place Desserts.
Happy Place Desserts is my dream come true. I started baking in middle school and it has always been my dream to one day open a bakery. That one day dream came sooner than later.
I love baking and I have found that I truly am in my happy place when I bake and that's how the name Happy Place Desserts came to be. What I love more than baking is when people enjoy the cakes and cookies I bake for them. So, you see, those two things go hand in hand.
