Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
I want to teach abroad because I want to continue accumulating the memorable experiences that I took part in while I was studying abroad in Europe. I want to see new things, meet new people, and submerse myself in new cultures. Along with personal experience, I want to expand my work experience abroad by challenging myself to something new while teaching something that can advance the lives of someone in this growing globalized world.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I am a suitable candidate for this opportunity because I am a deeply motivated, hard-working individual who is warm and open while also being a very quick learner. I have experience abroad and I study International Relations so I am hungry to gain the work experience and will do whatever it takes to succeed in the position.
