I am a native Torontonian who pursued a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Toronto. Shortly after graduation, I secured a one-year teaching position in South Korea. Things went so well for me that I chose to extend my contract, and wound up working in South East Asia for an additional year. Throughout my stay abroad, I experienced a few hiccups here and there, but overall I had a wonderful experience. I have no regrets!
