Why do you want to teach overseas?:

Traveling overseas in the era of COVID is admittedly not ideal. After graduating this year, my planned career as an archaeologist in Turkey fell through, and in my search for a new position I knew I wanted to commit to something abroad. I love to travel and I love learning the rich history and culture of different people and places.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am a highly organized and self-disciplined individual. I hold myself and my work to a very high standard, and I can function in both lax and fast-paced environments. I love trying new things, and very well-versed and comfortable traveling abroad. I am highly social and love to bond with new people (both in a student-mentor capacity and amongst co-workers).
