I have a strong passion for travel and cultural exchange. I took a year out between finishing sixth form and starting university to travel parts of the world, including Europe, Australia and South East Asia. This experience served to be extremely rewarding and enlightening in opening up my mind to different cultures and way of thinking and living.
My travels and university experience has introduced me to many people from different parts of the world and has provided the opportunity to establish fantastic relationships.
My experience working in a factory environment with a multitude of nationalities has highlighted the importance of communication and the value of English as a global language.
My degree of English Language and Linguistics has strengthened my passion and knowledge of communication and cultural exchange.
Teaching overseas would provide a fantastic opportunity to not only develop and test essential personal skills but it would also provide a rewarding experience in interacting, exchanging knowledge and developing the confidence and communication skills of young students, which is something I would cherish being a part of.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I would like to think that I am a friendly and approachable person with a hard-working attitude. I believe these are skills that transfer to a teaching role and educational environment where interaction is key.

My experience in interacting with different nationalities and cultures through my travels and work experience, have equipped me with the skill set to communicate and work in an overseas environment.
