Karen Pillay's experience teaching Kindergarten in China

Leaving one’s home and country is a big deal especially if you’re going to a place where the culture and lifestyle is so far removed from your own. Being so far from home, friends and family was something I had to prepare for, both mentally and physically. But prepared I was, mentally, physically and emotionally! I couldn’t wait to start.
