I have exciting news that this coming August I will be moving to Shanghai, China to kick off my next chapter! I graduated this past May with a degree in Anthropology and certificate in TESOL and am headed to Shanghai to teach English, experience living in the country I was born and travel around one of the most beautiful parts of the world. This has been my plan for several years now and I was fortunate that this past year, my university started a certificate program for TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).]
(My mom, favorite cousin and two aunts. A few of the many people who helped me celebrate)
Travel and exploring the world has been one of my favorite things to do since I can remember and I am excited to move to one of the most dynamic cities in the world! My journey to this point hasn’t been linear and there have been a lot of challenges and unexpected surprises including taking a semester off and then making it up by taking 24 credits my last semester. I had a really wonderful graduation that wouldn’t have been possible without my amazing mother and all the family and friends that flew in from around the country and world to help me celebrate. As I have said before, graduating high school hardly felt like an accomplishment, however graduating college is something that I am very proud of.
In only two months I will be taking off on a plane with a one-way ticket to Shanghai! These next two months will be filled with wrapping up my job, having lots of adventures with my family and friends around Colorado with a visit to Milwaukee and enjoying this transitional period.
Until next time!
