About Me

I'm a Surrey girl, born and bred, and having lived in the same 10 mile radius my entire life, I decided it was about time to follow some of those dreams and head off to distant shores to experience life from a new viewpoint!
I completed the 120 hour TEFL course and signed up to participate in the China Internship, starting in February 2010.
I also agreed to be an 'official blogger' for the Teach in China Internship programme, so have a read of my experiences and please feel free to ask me any questions (I'll try my best to answer them!)
