1. What experiences make you a good fit to serve in a preschool classroom?   Over the years, I came to realize that some of the happiest moments were when I was spending time with children. Since 6th grade, I have volunteered at the Arumdaun Korean School of Long Island as a teacher’s assistant every  Saturday.  By working with Korean Americans aged 3­5 years, I learned the essentiality of having patience, inspiring  creativity, and showing empathy when engaging with children and discovered how young students amassed  communication as well as social skills when processing a different language.  Most of the students I help teach were born  in America and spoke English at home; they did not have any familiarity with the Korean culture or language at all  whatsoever.  I, however, was born in Seoul, South Korea and had the chance to experience the Korean way of life before  moving to America.  After I studied and learned more about the technicalities of Korean grammar, I tried my absolute best to provide vital knowledge of the Korean culture to the young students who deserve and need it the most.  I truly grasped  the limitless possibilities of a small preschool classroom as we filled it with posters of the Korean alphabet made by the  students themselves, drawings that provided the definition of the weekly vocabulary, and writings by individual students  who wrote what they learned about each week. Additionally, I participated in the Vacation Bible School at my church in the summer for 8 consecutive years by taking the role of a VBS Bible Study Group Leader, Bible Illustration Station Leader, and Body Worship Team Leader.   Specifically, as a Bible Study Group Leader, I continually encouraged my preschool group to join in all the activities and  remain attentive in each classroom/station throughout the day.  As a Bible Illustration Station Leader, I introduced the  daily biblical story and made interactive presentations to guide the children’s understanding. I also read children stories to preschoolers and kindergarteners as part of the “Story Teller” program offered at the Syosset Public Library in the summer.  Not only did I just enjoy spending time with them, but also promoting literacy and  enhancing the overall book experience for children who shared mutual interests in reading. 2. Why would being a part of Jumpstart be a meaningful experience for you? One of my most memorable involvements with children was when I served in the 2015 Mexico Youth Outreach Program  in San Telmo, Mexico.  The duration of the program was approximately 2 weeks, which was barely enough to complete  all of the tasks we had planned to do there.  Although I provided food to the local villages, worked in rehabilitation  centers, and aided in constructing new education buildings, a majority of my time was dedicated to fostering imagination,  literacy, and fellowship among niños y niñas throughout the village.  I am truthfully grateful to Joseline for gifting me her  hair clip to remember her by, after I taught her how to decorate sun visors with glittery stickers and dance to uplifting  songs we had played. As impactful as our group was in the village of San Telmo, I believe that Jumpstart’s greater impact that has held its  traditional values and determination since1993 will provide another personally significant and honorable experience.  I am highly interested in forming new relationships and opportunities for the children who deserve to learn in a pleasurable and encouraging environment.  Attracted to the collaborative work and connections of bringing society together for the benefit of our youth, I wholeheartedly wish to engage in Jumpstart’s elite community of the dedicated professionals in order to  contribute the most of my knowledge and ability. 3. In a typical week, a Jumpstart Corps member serves 8­12 hours. What strategies will you use to complete  this time commitment? My high school life consisted of waking up at 5:00 a.m. everyday to study and finish course materials before school  started at 7:35 a.m., preparing and participating in 6 different clubs after school each day from 2:20 p.m. to 3:50 p.m.,  practicing for flute solo auditions at home during the night, volunteering at the Arumdaun Korean School of Long  Island from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and working on my art portfolio at the studio on the weekends, and managing to  stay on top of my Advanced Placement classes.  (On top of that, having to prepare for the SAT I, SAT II, and ACT  exams during my junior year made my schedule even less bearable.) Amidst my hectic agenda, I understood key lessons when it came to time management: I needed to prioritize my  goals, plan my work ahead, and organize my tasks.  By scheduling the things that are most important to me first thing  in the day, I know that I will have a lesser chance of getting interrupted.  When I plan and organize, I have a better  grasp of what I need to do and know that I can finish everything accordingly if I know when to do what. To complete my time commitment at Jumpstart, I have full faith that I will serve 8­12 hours and accomplish my  personal obligations by knowing putting “first things first” and creating a realistic schedule that will encompass my  college classes, study/break sessions, and working hours at Jumpstart. 4. Jumpstart Corps members participate in 2 weekly sessions in preschool classrooms; communicate with  families; have 2 team planning meetings; serve 2­5 hours in the child's classroom during the regular school  day; review session materials and complete paperwork. Which aspects of this typical week are you most  excited about? Which do you think will be most challenging? I am most highly looking forward to team planning meetings and serving in the child’s classroom. Having joined diverse groups from activities and programs such as the Mexico Youth Outreach Program, Long Island  Science Congress, or the Girls Varsity Badminton team, I discovered how effective yet enjoyable it was to collaborate on different projects with new people.  Working as a team provides insight from multiple perspectives, which helps  me to improve and gain ideas for further progress.  Also, when the work is divided up among the group, I am able to  explore a specific area that I may have not previously delved into while other members can research another  component that better suits their interests. Since I love interacting with all types of children in one­on­one environments and forming close bonds with students,  I am certain that I will share the similar determination, playful spirit, and partnerships as the other Corps members.   Also, I have worked in many classroom settings through summer camps and youth programs, which will allow me to  work well in a setting as relatively similar as the child’s classroom at Jumpstart. As of now, I don’t find any particular aspect challenging.  I would not mind participating in sessions in preschool  classrooms, since I have been accustomed to teaching in such settings for several years.  Furthermore, I enjoy talking  with families, because I love meeting new people, learning about their lives, and making any personal connections  with them.  As for reviewing session materials and completing paperwork, I consider myself a very neat, organized  student who values the importance of reviewing before starting any exam or lesson.
