In the space provided below, please elaborate on one of your activities (extracurricular, personal activities, or work experience) (150 words or fewer).

Any suggestions are welcome! :)


"Ms. Lee, can you teach the class?" Ms. Aoyagi asked. I awkwardly sat on the wooden stall in front of the class. All thirty eyes were clearly on me. Initially, it felt odd teaching people I would fool around with. However, as Ms. Aoyagi asked me to teach more often, I became more serious about my task. Now I constantly think about better ways to teach a material, for example, by creating fun games to engage the students. Sometimes, amazingly, my suggestions turn into main activities of the day.

Being a teaching assistant for the Japanese class has been a truly rewarding experience. I have learned how my day could be more exciting and productive, in school or in elsewhere, by being an active participant than being just an observer. I hope to contribute to the class by improving my Japanese first and coming up with new ideas for classroom activities.
