I am Olly from Shanghai. Growing up in China, I have always felt that there is a need for more art education for younger kids. Fortunately for myself, I was able to study photography and singing since I came to US eight years ago during high school. Here is the link for my photography website: www.ollyliuphotography.com. My interests in teaching starts when I volunteered in Cambodia last summer. There I worked with preschoolers – 12th graders and our goal is to teach English. Gradually, I felt connected to the kids there and we started a chorus there for the final concert. Now I just graduated from College, I really want to take some time giving back to the Philadelphia community and help them here with my passion of art and teaching. Here art Art Sphere I am hoping to give young kids exposure to music and also help to build a digital marketing presence online.
