Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
Language and culture are a big part of what makes us human. I have always enjoyed learning and teaching and am passionate about exploring the world. Teaching in another country would allow me to see a new part of the world, connect with the people there, expand my knowledge of a new culture, and broaden my world perspective! Being able to travel is very important to me, and I've found that a career in teaching would allow me to do something I love- help and teach others- while also satisfying my desire for travel.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I've always been good at connecting with people and always maintain a positive attitude which is important to have in a classroom setting. I care a lot about any work that I do, so I would give my students my full attention and energy to make sure they reach their goals. The organizational and problem-solving skills I've developed through my academic and professional experiences are also tools that allow me to work independently and efficiently.
