Speaking

Before my high school, when I was teenager I came to SH to learn painting by myself. When I was in the high school, I don’t like study and I know I will fail to go to the college. I cant’t go to it because my study is very bad. There is the opportunity that I can through painting to study art. At that time, my parents taught me to the teacher’s place and I painted a picture for the teacher and he decide whether I should study for the painting.
