What do you do in your free time?




During my free time, I love to read good books and play sports like volleyball and basketball. I don't really have a specific taste for books, but I like to read things that most of the readers say that it is good. My love towards reading lead me to new door called English. My favorite subject is English, because the flow of the words in the text really draws me in. While I am reading a novel or a sentence, I like to feel them 'dancing' with me(he said 'feels good man'). Also, I am thinking of taking the SAT subject test for literature or composition. Not only reading books but I also like to watch NBA and volleyball games. I get stressed out when I see or undergo kind of people who can not keep their noses out of other peoples businesses excessively, for obvious reasons. Thanks to my lovely hobbies I can endure those moments.

What’s your best/favorite experience you’ve had ever since you came to Korea?


“I recently finished one year staying in Korea and it would be my honor to count this place as one of my favorite places. I had my best experience when I used to go out for a walk accompanied by my younger sister during the cherry blossom season. I believe cherry blossom represent the love and compassion of Korea. Watching the tender and attractive color of the flower is the most beautiful moment I can ever have.”

Difficulties in High school


“Well…Haha I really love my school, but these days,
kind of everything makes me more tired as I entered Sophomore year of HAFS.
Especially, studying took the biggest percentage of my stress in here, because
the school is full of competitive students who are so passionate learners. Sometimes,
I spend hard days on maintaining good relationships with people or living in dorm.
But, when I get stress, I usually try to resolve it by playing lacrosse which is my favorite.

Whenever I play it, I feel alive, and thanks to our precious team members, they always give me vigor.”

My Dream job in the Air


“My dream job was, and is, to be an airplane engineer at Boeing. After I retire, I would like to travel around the world and have a rest. Getting into St. John's Northwestern Military Academy did not affect my future plan in any sense, but it did provide an opportunity to prepare for my future physically and mentally with military tradition and academics.”

A Senior's Summer Plans


No doubt, this summer will be a period of building on what I've done so far, but it will also be a rare chance to embrace the new.
Indulging in new hobbies, meeting new acquaintances, guzzling new books...much like Anne Shirley would have said, after each ambition checks off, there's another star on my list glittering even higher up. 
Though I may not be rich in energy or much else at the moment, tired out from graduation as I am, I want to stay rich in dreams as summer rolls along. I sincerely hope it's a sentiment not lost on my fellow graduates. As we face a road laden with obstacles ranging from employment to world politics, it's not an emotion we can afford to lose. 

Daring to pursue dreams, both old and new, is a plan we should all share for our last high school summer.
