Essay by Narada Jangmook

Being a student in a different country that you’re not used too, it’s very difficult. One thing that made me fit in is how helpful I am. I helped my school by doing community service and joining different clubs, my church I’m active in the different activities and I am also helpful at home.

I go to Pasadena High School for three years, and in the three years I joined Asian-club, Photo-Club and Z-Club to do community service to help people that need help and I am also in the Graphic Communication Academy (GCA), I helped my friends when they have problem that they can’t do. For example I help my fellow class mates when they don’t know how to use the program that I do. I also helps clean up the class room when is not organize. And I also got a chance to help out at the library for community service.

Church is my second place that I’m helpful and feel comfortable with. I have a chance to do a lot of stuff for church, like helping by cleaning up the church, washing dishes because they serve lunch. In the morning I helped take care of the Sunday school kids, and I lead activity for the youth group. When the service is on I also be an usher or sometime play musician.

Back then, when I was with my parent I used to baby sit my own brother, wash dishes, and cleaned up the house like other kids, but now that I’m not with them. I became a big sister for my guardian’s family and from my helpfulness at church. It is easy for me to deal with kids. Like sometime I teach them homework and baby sit them.

I learned a lot of things from my helpful. I learned how to deal with different type of people and what're their needs. Like people at school; my friends and my class mates, people at church; little kids and youth, and also how to be organize with books and others stuff in the library. So from my helpful is a good experience for me.
