“Giving live performance of a good presenter”
Students admired Kimmy being so confident, charming and presentable; they regarded Kimmy as giving live performance of a good presenter. Kimmy always encouraged students to be more confident; many female students viewed Kimmy as a role model, whereas others said Kimmy was an admirably successful woman, who willingly shared her experiences to others. Kimmy gave confidence to students; Kimmy would comfort those nervous students, guide them with solutions, and convince them in trusting themselves.
Kimmy quoted diverse examples from different disciplines to elucidate the theories and strengthen students’ understanding. In speech presentation, every student had one’s own strength and weakness; Kimmy gave them feedbacks individually, which enabled every student to have one’s own personalized ways for improvement. Another thing Kimmy did was to invite 2-3 students for critique of student’s speech; being with diverse background and disciplines, students responded differently to one another’s speech, exposing themselves to various perspectives and opinions.
Here are some of the comments from Kimmy’s students:
“I sought Kimmy’s advices on my personal issues, knowing that her previous work experience in public relations. I felt Kimmy truly cared about me and took good care of me. I would regarded her as my counsellor; I felt Kimmy was in full support of me, and felt relieved after gaining advices from her, which I am truly grateful to her. I know another students had similar occasions in consulting Kimmy’s opinions on further study in the US or career prospect in Communication, and Kimmy was eager to share her experiences.”
