When we grow older, I have learned to tailor my conversation with her according to her preferences and made her understand my ideas through elaboration. Through this openness to new communication techniques anchored in responding according to my sister's requirements, I was able to build a harmonious relationship.
My experience in studying sign language strengthened my determination to choose communication as a major. Sign language classes exposed me to the hardships and needs of people who are disabled. I used to pity them knowing that they do not have avenue where they can truly express themselves. However, it also challenged me to make a difference in communication as I am able and free to communicate my ideas.
When I was young, I have developed an interest in communication through mass media especially during the nights when I watch documentaries with my father. It opened my eyes on social issues which typical people ignore. Having the chance to explore this field, I choose to become an intern at a Korean news station (KEMS) within the past six months. My first assignment was to report on the animal festival' in downtown San Jose through capturing two interviews on my camera. I was initially nervous but find it rewarding to see my work aired on the television.
Man is a social being and communication is as old as man himself.
