Meet Hye Jin (Grace) Um
Who do you volunteer for?
My volunteering journey commenced 20 years ago when I volunteered in various countries. Volunteering enabled me to learn more about different cultures whilst retaining an affection for my Korean culture through shared experiences.
I have been a Bilingual Storytime Volunteer with the City of Canning since 2020.
Why do you volunteer?
As a Bilingual Storytime Volunteer, I can share my Korean literacy skills through regular programming and school holiday sessions. Volunteering my time is a rewarding experience when I get to teach Korean to children from other cultures.
I work as a Special Needs Education Assistant at a primary school and have recently commenced teaching dance for Communicare. It is fun to meet and interact with children and families of various cultures through both teaching opportunities.
I am open to sharing my Korean culture with Canning’s communities and are readily seeking new opportunities to connect into new teaching opportunities.
