My Dream: Becoming a sports commentator


Watching sports game is my hobby. Mostly I listen to the sports commentators commentating over the game and players’ skills. I wanted to be a footballer, however, I have lack of skills and the strength to play long term. Unlike my poor football ability, people around me compliments on my speech skill. So, I decided to put my love for football and develop my talent of speaking. This consideration will help me step closer to my dream: a sports commentator. I will continuously practice my speaking strength and furthermore analyze deeper and specifically on order to deliver the best comment.

Goal in Life


My goal in my life is to work and study what I like. By studying many different subjects and methods, many thing was banal and felt very useless. However learning science and math is very interesting for me. By learning science and math, I thought I could really study these subjects till I die. After that moment my goal in my life is study for NASA which requires math and science.

"What's it like being known among your peers as 'Seung Bae'? Any advice for those of us aspiring to be seungbaes?"



"It's a true honor to hold such an extraordinary nickname. I honestly don't know how I got the title, and I'm just thankful that my peers acknowledge my character. As it is prom season, I am looking for an individual that would be the bae to my seung. My advice for future seungbae prospects would be to always put a smile on your face no matter what!"

What is it like being the eldest sister of three?


What is it like being the eldest sister of three?

Being the eldest out of three has made my life very difficult yet exciting. I'm not sure if it's normal to be so close to your younger siblings, but I practically raised my youngest sister, who is 11 years younger than me, and the middle is like my best friend, who I hate half of the time. It certainly gives me lots of privileges being the eldest, and I love the feeling of superiority, but with great power comes great responsibility. It is very tiring and unfair to see my sisters being able to do things that I had to wait until I got older to do, like sleepovers, and it's extremely annoying to have to watch my words around the kids, and having to share, despite my greedy personality. It also never fails to amaze me that the most intense fights that I have with my sisters are because of the most trivial matters. Due to being the oldest, my parents expect so much of me and I have to sacrifice many things for them, like wasting my precious time to go pick up my sister from school. Despite the many drawbacks of having annoying younger siblings and contrary to my outside cold demeanor saying that I hate my sisters, I still love being the oldest and they make my life so much more colorful and bright (most of the time).

Facing the New World


I’m a passionate learner of Spanish. Learning this special thing since a year ago, the language itself was enough to attract me. I studied hard and even extended my interest to Spain. However, ironically, the more I researched, the emptier my mind was. So, to fill in that part, I traveled to Spain for 8 days in this February. Through the wonderful journey, I met people,experienced its culture and language, and truly faced the world. “If you don’t know other countries, who can say you know even your own country?”-spoken by my high school teacher.Even I’m a student who is only stepping on a basic stage, I will continuously challenge and learn to greet the upcoming world.
