I am a senior in high school, which means I will be graduating in June and my life officially starts. Everyone is asking me, "What are you going to do after you graduate???" I'm not certain, but I have a couple ideas that might be possible.
Yesterday in the mail I got a select scholars paper from the university I am interested in. I was so happy!! It's funny because I was supposed to apply last week, but I spent all day at a local carnival. Thank God I procrastinated XP
No cost! No essay! Possible scholarship money! Will get a response within 2 weeks of submitting transcripts and ACT scores!
What's more is that while I was looking at pictures of the dorms, there was a picture of SHINee and Exo on the walls. Wow small world~ There are SM stans at my (hopefully) future school ^^ Maybe they have a Korean club~ I know that they have many study abroad programs in Korea and Japan.
I am seriously thinking about teaching English in Korea after college. I don't need a degree in Education or English. I can make at least $20,000 with housing included. I was worried about a few things, but watching these youtube videos gave me more motivation.
I am African American and a bit on the chubby side (size 14/16 in US) I was worried that I wouldn't get hired beause of my race. And if I did get hired I wouldn't be able to find clothes. Those worried faded away.
Most people who make youtube videos about their experience teaching English in Korea have positive things to say. And this guy looks like he's having a great time :)
I would perfer a city like Seoul, Busan, or Daegu. I'm not a fan of rural areas. The path seems pretty straightforward if I decide to do this. I'll just have to save up some $$ for teaching certification classes and travellng expenses. I can get a job in a foreign country straight out of college!! That's amazing!! And I am kinda interested in teaching and in the english (writing) field.
But I'm still young and plans can change.
