More than a year ago, an acquaintance of mine told me a very wise saying, “If you want to enlighten others, you have to shine first.” Although it is not easy to be a manifestation of this word, there is no doubt that it is one of the things you must do as a human being. This time, we invited a precious girl who was the first to shine and spread her light to others. Inner beauty is of incomparable value.
Introduce yourself to our readers?

How does the culture, customs and lifestyle of the Korean people affect the rhythm of life? What are the new habits you are learning from them?
Koreans are a wonderful people who have never been lazy and have never learned to sit still. While studying and working in Mongolia, I thought I was very busy and diligent. I just wanted to have a good rest … But when I come here, I literally learn what a real job is and what a diligent lifestyle is like. Unbeknownst to me, my life is full of Korean people who value their time. I really wanted to spend this precious time productively.
What are the highlights of the life lessons you have learned here?
Of course, there is a lot to learn from this. Even though I left home where I grew up many years ago, living in a different environment and in a different place is the biggest school in my life. There were many tests. I am thankful that all my hardships have been irreplaceable lessons and experiences. Most importantly, I learned to listen to myself, to understand myself, to accept the obstacles I face in my life, and to realize that it is my duty to overcome them. In other words, accepting everything as it is and being grateful for everything you have is becoming more and more obvious every day. In the past, I tried to change everything on my own, and if I couldn’t, I was frustrated. “Why me? Why should it happen to me?” Now I don’t want to “fight” with anyone. The only thing I have to fight for is me. All the spiritual changes that have taken place in this area are infinitely grateful for their evolution.
Probably living in a busy life, studying, working, raising children. How do you get the energy and inspiration for life at this time, and how do you prepare for the next few days?
The busier you are, the more you feel you are accomplishing. It’s a tragedy for a young person to be free. In the midst of all this hustle and bustle, relaxing and recharging has become one of the most important things we have to manage. I make a monthly plan of what to do, break it down into a week, and keep a diary. My forgetfulness made me such a habit. My mornings usually start with a quiet reading when my family isn’t awake. It’s almost like meditation for me. It’s nice to sit alone and organize your thoughts in silence. The book is always by my side, so I have never been lonely. You get the most energy from books.
