Transformational Overseas Experience
Teaching English for one year in a small town in Japan was exhilarating and humbling since I did not know the language. I will never forget the kindness shown to me as I struggled to complete the simplest of daily tasks. This experience made my world simultaneously larger and smaller and led me to my career in international education.
