“Teaching in Thailand was definitely an experience that has changed my life. I was in my placement for about a year, a very small town in Northeast Thailand, while there were definitely some struggles (for example that time I didn’t have any access to running water for about two weeks during a drought) I’ve learned so much from them and I wouldn’t have changed anything for the world.”

"My experience teaching in Thailand was hands down the best year of my life! I initially signed up to teach abroad for only one term, but ended up staying longer because I completely fell in love with the students, culture, and beauty of Thailand. Moving to Thailand was a big step out of my comfort zone, but all of the OEG staff was so welcoming and really eased my nerves upon arrival. I learned so much at orientation and ended up meeting some of my best friends along the way! I could not have done it without OEG. Living in Thailand was one of the most rewarding and amazing opportunities I have ever had. If you are even halfway considering it, I say go for it! You only regret the chances you didn’t take. I am sure you will appreciate the “mai pen rai” [don’t worry] way of living as much as I did. From the incredible food, kind people, and breathtaking scenery – it’s impossible to not fall in love with Thailand! "

This program had polished myself into a defined and responsible young adult. From an introverted and inexpressive kid, exposure to a foreign environment circumstantially allowed me to become more expressive and take more initiatives in pursuing my goals. Had I not participated in this program, my life and career path would have been undeniably different”
As of now, I have been part of the opening team as a bar supervisor of Morimoto Bangkok, a chain of international-influenced Japanese restaurant by Iron Chef Morimoto.
