I’m published on Verge!

vergeAs you may know, I will be writing for Verge Magazine as a guest blogger during my time in Korea. Verge promotes the idea of travel with purpose – they believe that changing the world for the better starts with gaining international experience in a meaningful way. To help people gain this experience, Verge publishes extensive resources on opportunities to study, work and volunteer abroad.

I am thrilled to say that my first blog entry has just been posted on their website under the “Globetrotters” category! I wrote this post a couple of weeks prior to my departure, while I was preparing myself mentally for the huge step I would soon be taking. This entry reflects on the decision I made, and explores why I chose to move to the other side of the world to begin this new adventure.

I’m very excited to have the opportunity to write for Verge, and I hope you will enjoy reading my blog series from Korea!!! Click on the link below to view my first entry.
