How A Girl From The Midwest Moved To The MidEast

One year ago, I embarked on a journey to inspire others to live an international life and explore a career abroad. I wanted to share the amazing professional possibilities and personal rewards that come from living a life less imagined abroad. The response has been truly inspiring. Every day I get emails from people all over the world asking me for advice on how they can move abroad.   The topic is, as we say, trending. Currently 71% of millennials…
