Originally born in Korea, I had a chance to live in America for two years in my elementary school years. Since then, I was able to develop my English speaking skill and adapt it to my life. Thinking back about my life in America, sports was one thing that I was able to enjoy even though I wasn't able to speak in English that much. With sports, I was able to hang out with my friends and practice speaking in English; maybe I was learning how to communicate with each other even with the situation that 'language' itself is not that much involved in communication.

Il peut s'agir d'un terrain de tennis sur le terrain d'une ville en bord de mer, un terrain de basket ou bien encore un mini-golf. L'immobilier de luxe se développe rapidement, et les demandes en installation sportive également de plus en plus courantes.
I am a Premier Skills level 1 coach educator. Joined PS in 2008 until now. I started a football project in 2010 and named it skilz Plus. Here we use football as a pull factor and tool to develop the community by engaging the youth girls and boys, give them basic football coaching as we address issues directly affecting them. The project has since seen over 1000 youths and also worked on several projects. These include, sanitation focusing on proper garbage disposal, Youth relationship with police focusing on community policing and crime prevention, Empowering young girls to develop confidence to play football, HIV prevention awareness over a cup of tea etc. The British council and Premier skills funded some of the programmes, but most of them have been seen through by the community. We are based in Makindye at Officers mess, and also worked with Right to Play Uganda e tc
