Is this your first time abroad? If not, where have you traveled?
I taught in Medellin, Colombia 2016-2017. I’ve traveled around all three Americas and now traveling Asia.
What made you decide to teach abroad?

I was feeling stagnant in life and wanted to travel more while still earning money.

Why did you choose to teach English in China?
I chose China because it's one of the better-paying countries for TEFL teachers. I had a choice between Beijing and Chongqing; I chose the latter because it seemed like a better city for me.
What are you most excited about being an ITA Ambassador?
I’m most excited about getting to know new people and finding new opportunities.
