What inspired you to work in this field? Ideas have consequences; what is taught in the classroom today will shape our culture and society for the next generation. Seeing my students thrive, not only while at our school but as they move to top universities and on to impressive careers, is inspiring.
What are the challenges you've faced? The biggest challenge in managing the school has been working with the government. Whether it was zoning challenges with the local government when we expanded our facilities or current challenges for our international students attempting to get visas with closed consulates and long waits when they get an appointment.
What do you hope to achieve in the future? I will continue to develop and promote programs that provide a wholesome education and teach students to discern, seek the truth, and live a life of abundance.
If you can give 1 or 2 pieces of advice to our prospective international students, what would it be? You will learn to speak English and understand American culture when you assimilate into your school community. Avoid being branded as an “international” student. Instead, live with domestic students and participate in school activities that interest you.
