My first ever film festival entry was a finalist.
Not a winner, which was a good thing.
If I was a winner, then maybe I would have stopped.
Never give up(포기하지마)
This film would of been nothing without the help of Stuart Hendricks
Stuart moved to South Korea as an ESL teacher in April 2018 after spending five years in content and publishing. He continues to nurture his passion for content creation with a portfolio which showcases his travels from across Asia. He focuses on street and travel photography, providing aspiring travel photographers with tips and tricks to get started on capturing their own journeys. In his spare time, he also writes for Tripzilla, a Singapore-based travel agency and Arcido, a company focused on single-bag travel.
As you can see, teaching English in another country opened up so much in my life. Teaching English in the public school system in South Korea allows you to give selflessly to your students and gives them the much needed opportunity to use the English they are taught so often. Living as in expat teaching English doesn't bring in Wallstreet money, or anywhere close to that, however, it does allow you to expand on yourself to unimaginable heights. This is the inspiration and motivation behind the podcast.
My goal for the podcast is to showcase ESL teachers that have come and gone. I want to connect with ESL teachers who have transitioned back to their home country or at least back to the west. The guests will share the good, the bad, the boring, and the ugly of living in another country and teaching English. The guests will also share their transition period between the ESL world and the next chapter of their lives. JourneySkorea will also accept current teachers applications, but those will be few and far between.
I came to South Korea in December 2015 and was instantly amazed at how many different types of people were teaching English. There were men and women from England, United States, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Some were English majors or education majors right out of college, but there were also individuals with previous careers in law or business. Most were young, but the most interesting teachers were ones who had previous careers before and/or families to provide for. Every story followed similar patterns, but all had their unique twist on how they started teaching English abroad. The podcast will allow you to hear those stories.
JourneySkorea is looking for individuals who have been involved with teaching English while living in another country.
