From a young age, I always wanted to work with languages and in teaching. Having been scared off by teaching in the UK due to the horror stories of young language teachers being taken advantage of and overworked, the dream of teaching died a little bit and I was left wondering what on earth I was going to do.
In July 2016, I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a 2:1 in French and Russian. I went to work in a local office where I prayed everyday that the building would mysteriously burn to the ground overnight and I wouldn’t have to go to work again.
Realising that my twenties were slipping away, I hastily applied to work for a company in Moscow which thankfully accepted me, took a CELTA course and prepared for my teaching adventures in Eastern Europe.
So here I am: moving to Russia, trying to curb my ridiculous spending habits and attempting to sort out my life, one lesson plan at a time.
