Korean culture in Bronx.

Hundreds of Bronx elementary school students showed off their Tae-Kwon-Do skills today during an assembly to represent some of the things they have learned about Korean culture over the past three years.

The Bronx Charter School for Better Learning students also sang songs in Korean during the special assembly.

In the school, students in kindergarten up to second grade receive a half-hour lesson each week. The principal says he hopes to continue the
classes as an after-school program if they can get the funding.

Maria Milosheva

Maria was born, raised and currently lives in Sofia, Bulgaria, EU. She is a journalist by profession and practices psychological consultation for the past few years. Maria worked as a reporter/journalist for a number of newspapers and radio stations. She served as a chief-editor of the National Library's monthly magazine Librarian for a number of years. Maria started drawing in 1991, urged by a strong inner need to recreate the reality beyond the usual – the world of forms and details… She has taken part in various exhibitions and her work is in a number of private collections around the world. It can be seen at MarmiArt.com. Maria's drawings are created using mixed techniques – aquarelle, tempera, ink, pencils, etc. They are unique and have no names. Their eventual owners would give them names, effectively becoming a part of the process of creating them. Every one can charge their own drawing with one's own energy and identify it with one's self. The drawings will repay generously, predisposing for calm moments of reflection and meditation.
