I am just a amateur.
My home country, South Korea, has a very distinctive educational culture with more than the 95% of the students to go on to the university. In fact, when I was a student, graduation from high school used to have a meaning of 'freedom from the demanding education by the others.'
When I was 19 years old, my first choice for myself and by myself was painting. Although, there were so many twists and turns, I've always tried painting and it was a pleasure. And, now, if possible, I want to make a new turning point in my life.
