  12. 12. and played at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. To further my interest in Music and Eastern European culture, I decided to live in Daugavpils, a primarily Russian-speaking city, in Latvia for 6 months. It has given me a unique opportunity to manage every area of my life from time management, organisation, and other motivational skills and given me a maturity, which I believe I would not have acquired had I pursued a convention education. I enjoy travelling and have travelled extensively around Britain, Spain and Eastern Europe including Russia and Poland. I always try to come away from a new place with a small part of its culture in my heart. Things stir me and I like to express my creative side in writing. I have enjoyed writing short stories and dioramas from an early age, and travel certainly has made the stories more interesting! Photography is my journal. Photographs chart my life and after taking a short course in photography, I was able to develop my own photos and capture the precise point of my interest in a more focused way. To prepare for my Latvian Studies, and raise capital, I worked for many families in my community, one of which
  13. 13. was actually an aupair agent. I looked after her son, aged 4 for 5 afternoons a week for 6 months. I had to do various duties, including feeding, bathing and bedtime routines and be aware of his needs in sole charge for about 4 hours a day. I gained valuable insight during this time, again, an experience I could not have gained had I been educated within the school system. I continue to be on good terms with the family, and babysat regularly until I left for Latvia. Following my time in Latvia, I spent three months in Moscow. There I worked for an English speaking nursery school. This was an invaluable experience which I enjoyed very much. It gave me the incentive to pursue teaching English further. I began pursuing this project by taking a TEFL course. It has given me the extra skills I need to successfully work with foreign students from any nationality. My experiences during travelling and knowledge of Russian have been extremely advantageous in this regard. During the summer of ‘06 I was employed by EF in Cambridge, working for their Junior Summer School. I originally asked to sit in on some lessons to observe teaching methods, and as a result of my discussions with the Studies Coordinator, I
  14. 14. was immediately offered a job and asked to teach a group whilst their regular teacher was absent! I gained invaluable skills during this week, furthering my interest into one of solid conviction. I taught for approximately three hours per day to students of all nationalities aged between 13 and 17. Following the success of that week, EF invited me to join the team as a group leader for a group of 25 pupils during their visit. I thoroughly enjoyed organising entertainment and excursions for the group. I feel I was able to provide an interesting and fun range of activities for the students whilst ensuring that all needs and interests were met. I developed my skills through hands on training, and observed the day to day running of a successful business, which has only encouraged me to continue in this field.
