I worked as an ESL teacher for elementary school children. As a person whose first language is not English, working as an English teacher was an interesting experience because I still vividly remember sitting on the other side of the room as a student tried to learn the very subject that I was teaching. I believe being able to relate to where my students were coming from made a lot of difference in how I approached teaching as I tried my best to see every struggle and challenge through their eyes. I love that I am fully empowered to continue providing student-centred support in my role as a reading intervention coach at LEARNstyle.
I think my students who showed up to my class despite their insecurities and self-doubt are heroes. It takes a lot of courage to continue to show up for oneself. I admire my students’ strength and confidence.
My passion is making a difference in the world. I enjoy working with people because there are so many things I can do to help them even in small ways.
I think I was on a picnic with my family when this picture was taken. Even though I am posing, I am pretty sure I was quite shy in front of the camera
My favorite food is roasted seaweed with rice. It is so simple but so good.
My favourite animal is dog. I feel instantly happier when I see a dog on the street.
My Happy Place
My happy place is my bed. I have a great habit of leaving all my worries when it is time to go to bed.
As a child, I loved spending time with my family and friends. After school, I would spend at least a couple hours in the playground playing so many games I invented with my friends. On the weekends, I spent a lot of time in nature with my family.
I don’t know why I am not smiling more in this picture, but I was extremely happy to graduate from my program. It was a difficult journey, but I made it through with the support of so many amazing people including my friends, family, and professors.
Pumpkins and Fall
I make weird faces because I don’t know how to pose. In celebration of autumn, I asked my friend to take a picture of me with the pumpkins.
I was not having a great day on the day this picture was taken. I didn’t feel very productive at home so I went to a café in my neighbourhood. Drinking coffee while staring out the window made me feel much better.
More about me.
I love exploring different cafes every weekend. It makes me feel like I am travelling abroad. I get to study the inside of the café and try different sweets. Sometimes, I talk to the barista or people sitting near me. Other times, I people watch.
You must have your back no matter what.
