Speaker intro:

Hello! My name is Susanne Liaw and I am helping out at the American Corner in Debrecen, when I’m not teaching at the University of Debrecen or Wali Istvan Szakollegium. I am from Los Angeles, California, where I am a high school English teacher. From my experience working with students, I’ve observed that success is not so much about being “smart,” as having a positive attitude, working hard, taking risks, and challenging yourself. So if your dream is to study in the USA and you feel intimidated by the process, don’t be! Ask for help. I got my undergraduate degree in English, and I went to graduate school twice (for English, then Education) so I’ve been through the application process a few times! I’m happy to share my knowledge about the college application process, personal essay writing, and SAT/GRE with you. See you around!
