This study seeks to understand the multiplicity of internalized voices, authorities, and values operating in second-generation Korean America young adults' lives as they engage in the project of self. The research methodologies employed were primarily ethnographic interviews, literature reviews, and participant observation. Two research questions guided the study. First, what are the young adults' internalized voices, authorities, and values, and how is this internalized multiplicity manifested in their lives and in their narrations of self? Second, how does the church affect the self and function as an internalized theme?
