When I was 13 years old, my mom sent me to the English academy in Korea. But I said to mom that I couldn’t go there after I went there for the first time. Because I was scared about taking the elevator and I felt like I was alone in an unfamiliar environment, which made me afraid.

I was afraid of everything and I thought I was weak at that time. Nevertheless, before I knew it, I became a high school student and got my first part-time job. And after graduating from college, I got a job.

If you think about it, the beginning of everything was difficult. But in the end I made it. Even so, in fact, I was afraid to come to America. Everyone was worried about me. Also I thought I can’t live here well without family. Unexpectedly, I’m doing well now. I went to school, I got a part-time job, and I made good friends. At last I realized that the things I worry about don’t happen and I can do anything if I believe in myself.

I am growing through these experiences. In my opinion, there is nothing you can gain without experiencing it. Most of all, thank you to my husband who believed in me.
