Two

I believe almost anything in this world can inspire you, just like how the mangas like Great Teacher Onizuka inspired me more to become a teacher. If the interviewer think that is funny, then I will tell them that that's what I am going to teach to my students: to go chase your dream no matter what other people tell you even if it is absurd or unconventional.
My goal is set on what I want to become. The only problem is the path. But a future teacher shouldn't give up before telling his student to "never give up". Even if I fall right now, I will make su…
