Moreover, I am teaching my younger sister Chinese at home.

Briefly introduce yourself and explain why you are interested in becoming a mentor for BranchOut!:

Browsing through the website, Branch Out focuses on its connection with its students, especially, students with a multicultural background. This goal coincides with my experience. When I just moved to the United States, I had the confusion in the school system and the anxiety of speaking in the public, but fortunately, I met my ESL teacher who helped me practicing speaking in her class, tutoring me on biology assignments, and gave me strategies to go through hardships. Therefore, I want to be a person who helps others according to self’s ability. As a junior at Woodson High School, I work hard to maintain good grades and steadily believe that the best expression of understanding is the re-illustration of the knowledge to others, so I joined Math Honor Society and Science National Honor Society. Moreover, fluency in two languages inspired me to teach Chinese to Thai Elementary school students for ten days. Throughout these activities, I learned that if I can share both my knowledge and experience with people who are on a similar path to my past, we all will benefit from it. I would feel pleasurable by helping, and the receiver will have a less frustrating time.
