Before my Korean Culture/Language class ended, Professor Kim decided
to throw a farewell party as well as a birthday party to celebrate her
birthday and my classmates’ birthdays together.

When she said that i was a bit surprised because usually professors
and students back in the states don’t do that. It was very nice and
considerate of her to bring a cake and candles, bananas (Asian families
usually have this for celebrations), muffins, bread, pastries, and
orange and grape juice. Initially she wanted to bring us Korean food but
because her sister was sick, we didn’t get to try her sister’s cooking.
When she said that she sounded really sad and sorry. She is such a
sweet and friendly professor. I wish i can have more professors like her
when i start my fall semester in NY.
