I aspire to be like my parents, here's why:
After graduating from the University of Oregon, they decided to leave their families behind in Southeast Asia to build a better life for my siblings and me. My parents worked day and night to provide us with great opportunity. Because of their hard work and sacrifice, I owe it to them to make the most of my opportunities, fulfill my dreams and make them proud.
My parents are not famous advocates or sports heroes, but to me they represent the unsung, hard-working, everyday citizens that make our communities strong and vibrant.
After graduating from Beloit College with a degree in Economics, I decided to move to the twin cities where I completed a year of AmeriCorps teaching 5th and 6th grade mathematics. Upon completing my year of Americorps I then landed into a career in risk analysis. Even with stable income, job placement and social acceptance of my profession, something was missing. Frustrated with the scope of my impact, I decided to become an instructor at the World Taekwondo Academy, helping people discover the black belt within.
Through my general life experiences, competing and learning Taekwondo, I've learned the ability to relate and to communicate with my students; giving them an instructor that is knowledgeable, supportive and caring. My teaching philosophy is structured around the idea of constant improvement and my classes are based on energy, fun and passion.
