THE STORY:

Hello family and friends! I'm glad you are reading this! I am currently teaching at SMK Bandau in Kota Marudu, Sabah, Malaysia. Bandau is a low-band school out in the Kampung (countryside) with tons of potential.

As an ETA (English Teaching Assistant) for Bandau, I am tasked with creating and carrying out engaging ESL activities and English camps. The purpose of an English camp is to find unique ways to have students utilize and improve their English skills.

At my school, exams and high scores are endlessly stressed. The Art of Self-Expression is a way to engage with students through various artistic mediums, while encouraging their English language learning. I want to give my students an opportunity to express themselves through the arts with sessions that include Hip-hop dance taught by former ETA Jolene, poetry and songwriting with Valerie Vanessa (a poet from Kota Kinabalu who has traveled all over the world), and painting and drawing with some of SMK Bandau's teachers and my fellow Sabah ETAs. All funds will be used to help support these sessions!

Just look at the pictures and ask yourself: Who wouldn't want to give to those beautiful little faces?!
