After the T/M Leadership Conference.

 I went to the conference that held on June 7th. It was really nice experience. I met many person, and communicated. Nice to meet you. When the first workshop, I was little shy at first. However, I could talk to them later, because of my video. I know it is not good, but many people gave praise and encouraged. I will try to develop my skill. I learned many things in there, such as America office culture, leadership, and communication. Thank you, Daniel and everyone.
