Currently, I am teaching English to Korean students and it has been great to watch them improve with time. Sometimes, students can find it difficult to learn in school and that some other methods of education are better for them. I am currently in ninth grade and have been a good student throughout middle school. I am also very interested in art, as I have enjoyed art ever since I was young. I also enjoy analyzing movies and stories to find problems and what they did well and see if I could write stories myself. I hope to help spread AAH even more and find bigger international success.
