7 A day in the life of a TCC International Student Hello, my name is Gyeong-A (G.A.) Kang. I m an Arts and Science student from South Korea. I came to Tacoma Community College to prepare myself for a four-year institution and improve my English skills. While attending TCC, I worked on the Multicultural/Education Team and organized cultural celebrations on campus to increase cultural awareness. I became a Vice President of Scholarship & Treasurer for Phi Theta Kappa (Honor Society) and Treasurer for International Student Organization Club on campus to promote cultural exchanges and community services on campus. I also taught Korean language to American students to share Korean heritage with the community. Various courses I took inspired and introduced me to different perspectives that expanded my understanding in my major, International Relations. Through the experiences at TCC, I had an opportunity to appreciate the diversity in the American society and passion in each individual. 7:30 a.m. Starting the day with a bowl of cereal Reading the newspaper enhances my English skills 9:45 a.m. A bit of caffeine gets me going for the rest of the day Getting a cappuccino in the cafeteria 10:14 a.m. Four heads are better than one Working on a group project in the library 3:27 p.m. Waiting for the bus to go home The transit center is right on campus 5:21 p.m. Studying at home with a little help from my furry friend 7
