Artist on a Mission – The Students Instructing the Teacher


‘You can learn a lot from those that you try to teach. You can learn of courage to leave family and fly to a place so different from your home. Perseverance to keep learning a new language when your lips won’t  wrap around the unfamiliar consonants.


Determination to give a presentation when the subject brings you memories that cause tears to flow from your eyes and words to bunch up in your throat. Endurance to keep trying when every other word has to be looked up in a dictionary.


You enjoy the book “Holes” all over again while you hear it read with a Mongolian accent. You remember the feeling of finding joy in the adventure of working and striving and sweating to gain an education. You see what the expressions of gratefulness and appreciation do for others. And you see what the end results are of hard work and practicing. The teacher also ends up with an education.
