About me

Paula Essam speaks six languages fluently English, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, French, German and a little bit of Spanish. 

Her thirst for knowledge and love for people and communication had her travel the world and live in France and South Korea and gain a bachelors degree in Political Sciences. 

Her love for the international film scene keeps her traveling to Venice, Cannes, London. Paula does voluntary work as a women's and diversity advocate and also writes.
