Featured Student Writer: Chae Bin Park

on March 12, 2012

ImageThis week’s featured writer is Chae Bin Park.  Chae Bin’s essay, “I Am a Child“, was a Top Ten Winner in our Fall 2011 essay contest.  Chae Bin considers herself a writer by mind but not merit.

“I know how difficult it is to accept your position as a grunt or amateur.  The fact is:  everyone starts somewhere, and that is the thought that brought along my essay.  To me, writing cannot be SOMETHING without a thought.  I am not writing words, but I am writing my thoughts.  I’m branching my opinions to others when I write, and it is the enjoyment of putting my thoughts out there that coaxes me to keep writing.  I love writing, but I also love playing the piano, drawing, reading books, and sometimes just sitting down and thinking.  I hope I will become a better writer in the future, but for now, I’ll work hard to ‘climb the ladder’ with hard work.”

When asked what her inspiration for writing her essay was, Chae Bin responded, “My Language Arts/literature teacher was the one who inspired me to weave my thoughts into my writing.  I’m so thankful I have a guide who can spur my inspiration.”
