Upon returning to the United States, she hopes to draw on her experiences in Thailand while pursuing a career in education policy or education law. In this reflection, you will find a letter, in appreciation and retrospect, written to herself vividly describing what to expect during the first six months of her teaching and cultural experiences in Thailand.
