Offer letter

On the 21st, I finally received a formal offer letter for a teaching position at the university. I had mixed feelings of happiness, excitement and great tension. I am bracing myself for this wonderful opportunity.

I am also grateful to my old professor who has allowed me to attend a teacher training course at a university in Tokyo from October to December.

Looking back to my past experience, every time I move on to the next step in my life, someone plucks me and allocates me to somewhere I did not expect. It might sound as though I take a passive attitude, but it is always true for me that an accidental encounter can be a signpost that leads you to a new adventure. Some parts of my parents’ education might have been successful, because I learnt the importance of doing my best and working hard for anything, while watching the hardships they faced in their lives.
