Adventures after graduating
“My life after graduating has been a real adventure. After spending three years of my sociology undergraduate degree learning about case studies, volunteering and studying different cultures, I knew I wanted to go out into the world and experience them. So I did just that! Since graduating, I have been teaching, travelling and volunteering across Asia, with a few highlights being a 2000-mile motorbike trip in Vietnam, and a short spell working in a Buddhist temple in China.
“I am currently now living in Gangnam, Seoul, South Korea – yes, Gangnam is a real place and not just a song – working as an adult English language coach and saving up for my masters in International Development.
“I am continuing my volunteering work, as three weekends a month I meet with a North Korean refugee, teaching them English and improving their public speaking skills, so they are able to share their experiences with a wider audience.
