Please tell us about what you have done since you graduated?

After graduating, I became a certified English foreign language teacher and found work with EF Kids & Teens in China. I got hired a few months after graduating and moved to Shenzhen in January of this year. I'm really liking my job a lot and it has given me a wonderful experience being immersed in life in a Chinese mega-city. I get to practice my Mandarin daily with some of my Chinese coworkers, and I've even started picking up Cantonese as well! My contract is for one year from January, and afterwards I will move on to the Philippines.
