Which countries or US states have you been to?

I'm from the US. I've visited Hong Kong, Japan, UK, France, New Zealand, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, but I actually got to live in Australia and Singapore for a few months. I had a short teaching experience in Ghana that was very fulfilling.

Have you ever participated on a volunteer-based trip before? If so, where and what did you work on?

One of my classes for a semester was to research and create a teaching curriculum for high school students in Ghana about entrepreneurship. We spent a week teaching them about business concepts, idea generation, and had them create business plans. Then, we had a city-wise business plan competition and watched everyone's hard work.

What would you most like to get out of being part of this meet up group?

I would love to seek opportunities that seem appropriate for me as well as learn from and hear about people's experiences.


Hi! Love to travel and would be excited to volunteer abroad. I am very interested in doing PeaceCorps or teaching abroad for a while.
