"The faith is to believe what you do not see yet, the reward of this faith is to see what you believe."-St. Augustine-
Hi, this is Jihey who was born in South Korea but from the world. I was a nice and normal student back in school days. And I was a nice daughter to make an effort to study hard to go to an university which my parents wanted me to enter. And then I was a nice employee to work for a company to meet the society's expectation. One day, however, I realized that I lost myself and the next goal. I always set a goal to meet my parents' expectation and society's expectation. If I still follow the goals that already set by society, my next goal would to get married and have babies... I felt that was not me. I felt I was lost and so empty. I wanted to find myself and what I love to do for the rest of my life. So I decided to quit the job and go to travel around the world to see how other people do and live their life meaningfully and happily. Since Feb.08.2015, I have been traveling and working at over the world meeting tons of people from a variety of backgrounds and experiencing different things. I am getting open my mind to the world and to everyone. Now I would like to say I am from the world, not only from Korea. On my journey, when I traveled New zealand, I had a chance to stay with some skydive instructors. They came from various countries in the world. I hung out with them and visited them at their work. When I saw their lives, they loved their work and enjoyed their jobs. They looked so happy. And I wanted to do what I love like them. And finally I tried the skydive. Just after jumping out of the plane, I realized that this is what I dreamed of. I can not forget the feeling of flying in the sky. It was just amazing. It changed my life. Now I have a dream. I would like to become a skydive instructor and want to let people know how fun flying in the sky is. I will become a skydive center owner or manager and will throw many free events which allow people who do not afford but really want to jump to skydive for free. To do that, for the first step, I need to get the A,B,C,D license which would be around 300~400 jumps. According to my skydiver friends' recommendation, I went to Florida to get A license. The video is about it. For the A license, I have done only 30 jumps which cost me around $3000. I still need over 300 jumps. In Korea, we do not have a proper skydive center to learn skydiving. So I applied for a working holiday visa for New zealand for a year. If I do part time jobs with working holiday visa to pay for the jumps and instruction, it will take 3 or 4 years to make my dream come true....but I have only a year visa in New zealand. If you help me, I can make my dream come true fast and will be able to help others who want to skydive like me.
Thank you for your support.
