User's Picture
Jan. 9, 2016. Happy New Year! the Eye of the Optimist blog goes on and the number of views is rising. Also, I've just finished eight more chapters of my latest novel, which is as yet untitled.

Female

KOREA REPUBLIC OF

I've been a teacher of English as a foreign language living alone in South Korea since mid-2007. Besides teaching, I travel, volunteer, think and hike. I've been an activist all my life. I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada where I spent almost all my life prior to my move to Korea. I was an ESL instructor, and a program and admin support person in government departments and educational institutions before I returned to studies and got a Master's degree in anthropology, after which point I was a tutor and researcher.
