I realised I was able to make any place in the world home
Working in Vietnam has let me get to grips with the culture in a way being a tourist would never allow
Great memories have been made
I feel so lucky to be a part of it
It’s taught me a lot, not only about teaching but also about myself
I look forward to teaching every day
