Saddest Moment in Life


The saddest moment in my life is when I had live in China, where I had lives for 5 years. I went to China because my father’s company ordered my father and our family to move from Korea to China. I had lots of friends while I was in Korea. But for 5 years, I had to suffer from friendship and had to make new friends, which wasn’t that easy in China. I had lots of memories, too which made me very depressed during my stay at China. This is why I chose this event as the saddest moment in my life.

What are some thoughts about moving to a new school?


Well, that’s a heavy question. As a genuine student of my grade, I am afraid of stepping into a new environment. I usually had friends in my previous school, so doing the process again is somewhat frustrating. Also, the curriculum and teachers and their margins on grades will be different from my previous school, so I really need to adapt. However, the most concerning thing is about my friends. They have been very kind and nice to me, so as I leave, I will miss them very much.

What about music makes you so passionate about it?


I’m passionate about music because it was something constant within my life. It’s something that I can listen to when I feel down or happy. Music has such a big influence on how I think and how I feel. I’ve met so many great people and mentors through music, and I believe that it’s where my personality can showcase itself in its best light. Music is so open to everyone that there’s a type and style for everybody. I just love music.

How’s your summer vacation?



Well, I’m living in Seoul during this summer vacation, which is my first time staying here. Although I was really shocked about the uncountable numbers of academies near my house when I first came here, I got used to them and also think that living in Seoul is a quite interesting experience. Unlike last year when I just played and took plenty of rest because of exhaustion, aftereffect of first semester in HAFS, for this summer vacation, I’m trying to live very productively by studying SAT or working stuffs what I’m interested in. I guess my freshmen year was full of panic, fatigue, and bombs? Ha ha... However, this year, I’m actually enjoying my life. I wake up earlier than when I’m in school and study very hard from the moment after I open my eyes until the very last second before I shut them. As more and more days go by, maintaining my studies makes me feel tired, but I’m looking forward to get good scores on my upcoming October and December SAT test. Also, I’m planning to keep up with my GPA and catch up with my dream in my next semester.
