John studied International Relations and English Literature at UBC and McGill, and during his high school IB years won awards for poetry. During his off time he lead his IB class to start a school news publication where he acted as Editor in Chief, and between busy schedules even started charity fundraisers for earthquake victims, raising over several thousand dollars. As a result he was presented with awards by the Richmond mayor, given interviews with various news sources, and elected as “Leaders of Tomorrow” by Richmond News.
Having finished most of his high school courses by grade 11, he felt dissatisfied with the education even from his IB courses, so he completed the remaining graduating requirements within 3 weeks through independent study and correspondence courses.
Starting from High School he began working as a professional interpreter for major international corporations and organizations, including UNICEF, Volvo, MasterCard, Canadian Pork Farmer’s Association, and several others in market research.
Due to his exceptional mastery over language, ability to think beyond the scope in international studies, and have natural leadership abilities, everyone who knows him recommended him to study law. As a result, while his peers were still in Gr. 12 or listening to AP courses, he had already began learning and discussing difficult topics in Law. This period of intensive study helped him learn an extensive vocabulary, deep concepts, and difficult thought processes. It also gave him the ability to achieve precise communication skills and persuasive reasoning abilities.
Having taught English since he was in high school, John is deeply passionate about education. When he was in his third year of college, he was invited to a large communication convention where he met a famous communication expert. This expert was so impressed with John that he partnered with him to open John’s own company, training professionals persuasive techniques, communication, and public speaking. At the time, all of his $600-a-class seminars were sold out, and the audience was all extremely satisfied. Regardless of whether the seminars were in America or Canada, his students all felt the results were fantastic.
Because he wanted to prioritize his academics, when he put his focus back onto his schoolwork he suddenly had a deep revelation, and in his final year of college wrote a program called Shortcut Studying, which helps college and high school students achieve exceptional grades through very short time, maximizing efficiency through techniques. At the time he researched the topic in depth and discovered that studying is not a matter of time and energy but rather in methods and techniques. Using this program he helped countless students achieve the highest grades.
Aside from running his non-profit organization "OneKindness Challenge", John is an avid traveller (with nearly 50 countries visited), writer, and mentor.
除教学以外，John还是一名励志演说家，做过TEDx演讲，在创业活动上做过主题演讲，并成立了一个以善意为基础的非营利组织，名叫爱心活动基金会（One Kindness Movement Foundation）。
