Hello, my name is Do Kyung Na and I go by Erica. I was born in Seoul, South Korea and lived there whole my life. After middle school, I was transferred to American high school and the biggest obstacle I faced was my English because my English was not good enough for communicating or understanding lectures. Improving my English and learning American culture were hard, but I was able to learn the importance of having confidence and opening up.
I am enjoying my life at CUNY Baruch so far. Classes are interesting and professors are nice and passionate overall. My essay grades were not as good as I expected and there are a lot reading assignments I have to do, but it makes me realize that I am now getting advanced education which means it is quite different from high school; it makes me work harder.
I hope I can maintain my GPA high enough throughout my college life and I want to be involved in many extracurricular activities, but there is a problem, which is that my time management skill is poor. I am an all-nighter, definitely not a morning person so I tend to stay up until 4:30 a.m. then go to bed and wake up at 10:00 a.m. However, I think I will have to change my schedule a little bit because it is not working well as it used to back in high school and I want to improve my time management skill so I can work efficiently.
