Location Preference Details: 
I would love to be in a city as cities are the places I truly thrive in. The one at the top of my list is Busan, I would love to be in a city as bustling as this one which both combines beautiful beaches and and an exciting metropolis. Also because I have two friends currently living in Ulsan who are also teaching English through flying cows, so it would be fantastic to live and teach there before they decide to move. I am also interested in Seoul as that is the capital and it looks incredible.

Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
There are many reasons why I would love to teach overseas. The first is that I love to travel, Korea has always been one of the top places I have ever wanted to visit and to teach there would allow me to see the culture for myself whilst emerging myself in it. Second I love a new and exciting challenge and I believe teaching kids would be a fantastic opportunity to really try something new, and to feel like I am really helping them in some way would be very rewarding. It also feels like such an amazing opportunity to take part in and something that I would cherish forever. Also I love meeting new people as I am very social and would love to make new friends from my travels.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I believe that I would make an amazing candidate for teaching in Korea, I am friendly, outgoing and optimistic and I love a challenge. I believe I would bring a fun element to my classes through my creative background and my degree in illustration I believe I could inject creativity into my classes which would be both fun and would benefit the learning of the student's. This could be included into activities so the children both learn but also have a fun experience doing so.
