Teach In Spain Program + 4 Weeks of Spanish Immersion Spain
Hometown: Burbank

Hey everyone!

I'm Asha, Pronounced "Asia", like the continent. :) Im from the sunshine state of Los Angeles, CA and have been dreaming of living abroad for years now actually. I cant believe my dreams are starting to come true and I thought I'd share some of my experiences with you along the way. I hope that this blog of my stories will not only resognate with future participants of the program but also those already currently abroad. I also hope to one day connect personally with some of the pariticipants who enjoy reading or even challenging my insights. This blog is not only to document my journey through the program but to also encourage others to take a chance on what they believe in, especially in what makes them happy. I hope you enjoy coming along this journey with me and I hope to hear about yours too!
