What is your hobby? Episode 121


"I had a hobby of playing the violin. I have been practicing it since I was in 7th grade, and it has been a blast for me. Every time I have some worries and things would not go in my way, I would play the violin. It would relieve my stress, and help me do better at it. I am currently in the school orchestra, and yeah, at least that’s something. I don’t wish to major it or something, but I sure wish I could become good at it one day."

What is your favorite music and season? Why are they your favorites? Episode 120


"Hmmm… I like various types of genres of music. However, if I were to choose one out of the many, then I would choose R&B. I really enjoy listening to R&B songs because they are catchy. In addition,
I really enjoy listening to pop songs. For instance, I recently started listening to Dua Lipa’s "New Rules."
I am trying to discover different genres of music to expand my taste in music. In summer, my favorite
seasons are fall and winter. In winter, my favorite seasons are spring and summer. Humans in general
tend to desire something they don’t currently have, which is probably why I prefer those seasons during
those times of the year."

What is your passion in life and how did you find it? Episode 119



"I have a keen interest in film production. My love toward movies started from my family tradition. Since my dad was young, my grandfather and he went to the cinema almost every single weekend. This custom has also been maintained in our family. At first, I just regarded watching movies as a simple hobby, but now I have become a ‘filmgoer’ and decided to enter the film world. My dad has also affected me a lot. Once, when I was seriously depressed about school works and my life, he told me that he lived his own life concentrating on his dream and what he truly wanted to do instead of caring about other people’s words and the world’s trend. Consequently, he was able to design cars with various companies and live with joy. This is one of the reasons I respect him, and his story really motivated me to keep moving toward my goals. So, I am continuously searching what I want to do in future because there are so many things I’m interested in. It’s important for us to know what we’re passionate about. To sum up, I want to say 'don’t care what others think of you. Find your own passion.' "

Now that you're a senior, looking back, how would you say you've grown (not physically)? Episode 118


"As a senior looking back, I can see that I have grown through failures. I have learned to accept challenges and that failures can be successes in the end. I realized that even though it is hard in the moment, it will all pass and it will turn out for the better. Because, after all, we are learning through all these events in our lives whether they are failures or successes. Therefore, I am not afraid to take risks and try new things because I am not afraid of failure."
