I am very excited to be coming home to Ireland! I haven’t spent proper time there in the six years I’ve been in Korea so I’m exciting by the prospect of discovering all it has to offer.
I’ve wanted to do a Masters for the last few years but the time just never seemed right. I was busy making progress with my life in Korea and just kept putting it off. Earlier this year, I went on a trip to Myanmar. There, we visited a pottery factory where they wheel spinner was a young girl of no more than 14 or 15. She was expected to give up her education after elementary school to spin the wheel. The money she earned would go to support her family. I came away from that trip realising how fortunate I am to come from a country where educational opportunities are just waiting to be taken. I returned to Korea and applied for my Masters. Thankfully, I got accepted SO for the next 12 months, I shall be a student of U.L! Exciting times.
If I’ve realised anything over the last few years, it’s that I’ve taken Ireland for granted in the past. There are so many great places to see and visit and I haven’t bothered to explore what’s right in front of me. So, hopefully I can get out and see with new eyes when I return.
Stay tuned for blogs on all my adventures while I’m back home in Ireland.
