While in university, I visited Barcelona after playing in a music festival, and I immediately fell in love with the city. I always knew that if given the chance to live in Spain, it would be an opportunity I couldn’t pass up!
Following graduation, I interned through Greenheart Travel at a company based in Hua Hin, Thailand. The internship was a constant study of exploration, and I loved connecting with people from all over the world who were traveling to Thailand in order to begin a new chapter of their lives teaching English.
But while I greatly enjoyed the internship, I wondered about the teaching aspect. I craved a more hands-on experience abroad, one where I could be an integral part of a school and fully embrace living in a different country for a longer time span.
After doing some research, I found a program through PremierTEFL that I chose for two main reasons: one, the program included an online TEFL Certification, which was important to me as I have no true background in the area; and two, I knew I would have the support of both PremierTEFL and the partner program here in Spain while living and working abroad. Navigating life in a new country has its fair share of ups and downs, and it’s wonderful to have support and guidance throughout the experience.
