About Me

IMG_6404

Hello!

My name is Insung Peak and I am currently studying Psychology in University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. My sister, Inkyung Peak, is living in Cambodia right now so we are pretty far away from each other. A lot of people ask me if we are from Cambodia but sadly we are not. We are from South Korea and we moved to Cambodia in 2004. Cambodia is our second home that changed our life. Of course the different environment changed us but this place has taught us how to love, how to cooperate, how to be patient and so much more but most importantly how to thankful for what we have in any given moment.

My sister has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), which is one of several different types of developmental disabilities. What this basically means is : individuals with this disorder are slow to learn new skills and have difficulties with communicating and socializing. Given the circumstances, there are many things that we cannot do like other siblings but we are just thankful to have each other and be able to support each other.

Everything Magical, is a place where you can primarily find my sister’s and I’s works, and a few other random posts. However, predominately, I would like to use this blog to further to explain and build awareness about ASD. Because my loving sister has ASD, I would like to help people with her condition by creating a better place for them.

My sister is amazing. She was born with an artistic talent meaning she can draw and create many amazing works. It just flabbergasts me that she does all this without any formal education. My sister also has speech developmental disability; and I believe that she has this special artistic ability to communicate with the people and the world.

I hope you guys enjoy all the posts in this blog!

Thank you!

  1. Awwww, I love what you’re trying to do to bring awareness about ASD! This is a great way to share your sister’s talent to the world ’cause she’s so talented! And wait, did you change your major?

  2. Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I liked reading your about me section, it was heartfelt and passionate. I think it’s wonderful that you are helping your sister find her voice and spreading it around the world. I look forward to reading more of your posts. ❀

  3. I love clay! It’s probably the oldest artistic material people have used, and I haven’t used it since I was a kid. Maybe some day I will pick it up again, who knows? Have fun with your creations : )

    • I know right? People seems not to use clay so much these days since more art technologies are developing and allowing people to simply be creative with their computer or ipad. I liked that my sister is still sticking with ‘old days’ style. Even thought it is ‘old’, it feels ‘new’ now in some perspective. Thank you for your visit!

  4. Beautiful, warm, open, loving energy! I love it. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us to help bring awareness to ASD and to ourselves. I am thankful for your sister for gracefully being who she is which has helped to bring to light who you are and now me as well πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much! It is my pleasure that I could bring a light to you by just simply sharing what my sister is doing. Hope that you come to my blog often to check more art work in the future! πŸ™‚

  11. Hello Insung, thank you very much for visiting my blog and liking my post ‘The Joy of Children & The Sadness of Asperger’s’. I can see why you would be drawn to that particular post having now visited your blog and read all about you and your sister! As a mother of a grown daughter with Asperger’s (she is almost 21, diagnosed at 18) I can certainly relate to your desire to raise awareness of ASD and advocate for your lovely sister.
