I’m currently learning Korean so I am able to live much easier there, and also dam the college is so cheap there compared to America lol

      Hi Angelena! It is kind of crazy how cheap college is in comparison to the US. I would suggest finding some groups – maybe on Facebook, for expats, students living abroad and those kinds of things to find people to connect with. Make sure to research visas and what’s allowed in terms of staying over there past studies. You may want to join the TBA Travel Tribe on Facebook and see if there are any ladies who have done this or something similar or are currently living in Korea:

I want to take the TEFL certification and move somewhere in Asia. my ethnicity is going to be a big challenge to you have any recommendations also are there other bi-racial teachers or communities that will help me adjust . I don’t want to be double isolated and want to make friends.

      Hi Angelique! The TEFL certification is a wonderful thing and job to pursue! At this time, I am not aware of other bi-racial teachers or communities — but I am sure they exist! You may want to reach out to the ladies in the TBA Travel Tribe on FB to see if they have any feedback or know of any resources to help you out:
