Ellen C Kim - the Joy of Spreading Knowledge

By Colbert Raynard Subscribe to RSS | February 22nd 2012 | Views:

Eventually, nearly every person living on this planet is going to find a calling, something which they dearly want to do… whether or not people ever achieve that calling is a different story. While in some cases people simply are not willing to put the necessary work in, there are other cases when people do not have the necessary resources to afford classes or a higher education, a situation out of which very few get out. Such is the story of Ellen C Kim, a Filipino American daughter to a poor family of immigrants that just came to California in hopes of living the American dream. However, things proved to be complicated as money was very hard to come by and the culture was hard to assimilate to. Regardless of that though, Ellen C Kim had a dream she wanted to achieve, a future she desperately wanted to make happen: she wanted to become a teacher and spread knowledge around the world.

Before Ellen C Kim could even think about becoming a teacher she needed to learn the English language, which proved to be somewhat of a problem for her. Fortunately Tara Tabie Kim, Ellen's mother, while spending most of her time at work, cooking or sleeping, still found time to help her daughter master the English language. Ellen didn't put Tabie Kim's efforts to waste as she excelled in school, especially in English and mathematics. Even though she had to put up with a fair amount of teasing and segregation from her peer groups, it only gave Ellen C Kim more motivation to become someone important who will contribute to shaping the future. After many years of hard work, dedication, tears and sweat, she finally graduated from the University of California in order to become a full-fledged English teacher.

What makes the story of Ellen C Kim a truly remarkable one is that she defied all odds not only in the sense of being a poor immigrant, but she also undertook the task of teaching English, a foreign language, to children who speak it as a first language… and she became remarkable at that. Today, Ellen C Kim takes the time to teach in as many different places as she can around the world, finally achieving her true dream which at the base revolves around spreading the truth.
