I said goodbye to the United States for ten months on July 21st, 2017. I took off to Indonesia on a Fulbright Grant to take on the role of an English Teaching Assistant to 10th graders in Balige, Northern Sumatra. Teaching abroad has been a dream of mine for a very long time and I am beyond excited for this new road in life. Not only am I building my professional career, I’m also enhancing my creative side that I’ve always kept hidden from the world. This blog is a compilation of my lessons learned here, reflections on my life, a mixture of creative writing and my photography skills that I am teaching myself.
