Hi! I'm Mailinh Nguyen and I'm an ESL instructor in LEAP, an intensive English Program at Wright State University. As an instructor, I spend my days teaching and working with international students on improving their English and academic skills. These students have the intention of continuing their studies in America. Besides teaching, I also plan, coordinate, and collaborate on projects and activities that are focused on helping our students become more familiar with their new academic environment.
So I know what you're thinking, "Why does an ESL instructor have a website?" Well...besides my passion for teaching, I also have a passion to be creative. I love being creative in any way I can -- either through teaching or any opportunity that allows me to be creative and/or push me to see things in a creative perspective. I don't think I could live in a non-creative world.
When I started this website in June 2012, the goal was to share with you my creative adventures in the field of photography. However, after much reflection I realized that photography was not for me. I love photography but it was the creative path that was meant for me.
Right now, I'm still trying to figure out what my "creative calling" is. But in the meantime, I have created this little section on this site called "The Creative Assignment" for creatives who want to give themselves a challenge. I have a lot of ideas for this section and I hope you'll join me for the fun. :)
