Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
Having working in Film and TV for nearly 10 years I am first and foremost looking for a new challenge. I am fortunate enough to have experience working with child actors and supporting artists and have found the relationships genuinely rewarding. Looking at the skills I have developed throughout my career, I believe them to be most transferrable to teaching.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I am an intelligent and mature individual who has learnt to adapt quickly to an ever changing working environment. That coupled with a passion for travel and experiencing new cultures means I am an exceptional candidate for working with resilience and confidence overseas. I am excited to submerse myself in a new culture, but moreover happy that I have something worthwhile to offer the local community.
