For the past 2 and a half years I have been living and working in South Korea. I am an ESL teacher and my duties include planning and constructing English lessons that will help my students to improve and understand how to use the English language so it will be beneficial for their future. I have had the opportunity to live in two wonderful cities in two different provinces in South Korea and in between contracts I traveled to Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines.

I am very much interested in anything that involves creativity or development,although my skills tend to be stronger on the management, organisational and planning side of things. Much of my free time is spent working on articles and interviews for 'Nifty Shutter' (a photography website).

I believe that social media is one of the most important inventions of our era.I love how interacting with others and sharing content is constantly pushing me to learn new skills and stay on top of trends in every aspect of life, whether it's business, art,fashion, health or even science.

I have been working very hard the last year to to build and develop my skill set of content writing up to a level where I will be both confident and capable of accepting any challenges or obstacles that may occur. I am also a rapid learner and my open mindedness allows me to use creativity and logic to solve any problems. I have a very open and inviting personality which reflects both humour and professionalism.
