Euny Ryu, the EC Miami student of the month, who is from South Korea, has some thoughts that she would like to share: “Don’t compare me with other people. I’m bright to the world with my own light. It is my attitude toward life since I was young. I’m trying to find my own light through experiences and traveling. Above all, Miami is giving me a bunch of experiences, not just English ability. I don’t know that what is exactly, but I can feel that I’m changing. Especially, the best one for me is that I got best friends from all over the world. We have different appearances, cultures and languages, but I have learned to have conversations with each. Also, the longer I lived in Miami, the more I thought that I should appreciate all that I had and did. If someone asks me about my life in Miami, I will tell to them. ‘I am in love with all of the moments there–still now.’”
Euny’s teacher, Francesca, has the following to say about her: “It has been a pleasure having ‘Euny’ in class. She is always dedicated to her studies, focused on excellence. She also demonstrates great leadership and social responsibility in the classroom. Her sunny disposition and clever attitude make for a great classroom experience. I am so proud of her progress and feel confident that she will continue to succeed.”
As Euny stated above, she learned a lot not just from her English classes in Miami, but also from her experiences in Miami and the conversations she has had with the many people she has met here.
