I am Jae! Yes, I know that's the most unoriginal name ever. Most people are super confused when I tell them my name is Jae. Its like they are waiting for me to mouth the rest of my name. My full name is nothing shy of original... Jecha Shamir Dangerfield. Yes, before you ask... my last name is really Dangerfield and no unfortunately I have never met Rodney. People are often so fascinated by my last name they forget to read my first name and once they finally see it they are scared to even take a shot at pronouncing my first name. I am quite used to it. After being present for many years of roll calls waiting for the painful pause shortly before hearing -Uh, Miss Dangerfield- or after ordering my daily dose at Starbucks to receive a cup that reads Jacob, I have gotten past being annoyed. My name is pronounced Jay-Shuh. Not Jeshay, Jecka, or anything of the sort. However, since that seems to be the hardest thing for anyone who meets me to grasp you can just call me Jae.
