I took a risk whenI dropped out of college and moved to a small city in Peru to teach English. With only high school Spanish under my belt and zero teaching experience to bring to the table, it felt like an "on the whim" decision, but something about it felt right. I took a risk because I wanted to be outside my comfort zone. I wanted to move to a country I've never visited, and live in a city I'd never heard of, and teach in a language I don't speak fluently. I wanted to test the teaching skills I'd never practiced. I wanted an adventure, but of course, that was the risk. What would I do after? I don't know anyone there. What if I'm bad at it? What if I get kidnapped? Hurt? Robbed? What if my Spanish is horrible...These are all the things I heard, but they didn't come from me.
