Finding Friendship in a Strange Land

by Yumin Kim

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
This book is mainly about communication between others and me. Each chapter consists of one or more types of communication - spoken, written, or even unspoken, through my art - that influenced me or made me curious to learn about in more depth. Some of them include moments when I doubted myself or memories of cherished times gone by.  Some chapters include research I did about things that I love, such as art and food. One of the chapters contains my view of the person I love and one concerns the regret I have about a certain person. Many of the relationships that I have had with my family and friends are also shown in this book, since they directly concern how we communicated with each other. I hope you will agree that communication makes us fully human.  Being alive is a great privilege and a gift, made all the more precious by the ability to convey the most meaningful things in my life, that which touches me deeply, to my family, my friends and teachers, and to anyone else I might meet.
