COM 101 – ND
Education has had a major impact on my life but before I get to that, let me start off by giving a brief introduction of myself. My full name is Jae Hyun Lee but I like to be called Jae. My family came here from Korea when I was 2 years old. Having grown up in Queens almost my whole life, I developed a “New York” lifestyle where the tempo of everything I do is fast paced. I used to not be able to communicate well with people who I am unfamiliar with but that has gotten better through the years as I got comfortable speaking to whomever.
My overall education experience has felt like a developing relationship between a girl and a boy. In the beginning, I had no desire for education but as time grew, I found a motivation for success and that has played a major role in my life. Another key part that played a big role were my teachers/professors. The ability of how well the teacher or professor can communicate with students normally judges the grades I receive, but luckily I have ran into many professors with great communication skills.
One of my biggest weaknesses is the ability to not communicate well during certain situations. Sometimes what I am thinking in my head does not translate to how I want it to come out. Also when I try to explain or describe something in detail to try to sound very professional, the right words just would not seem to come out.
