I am originally from Trinidad and Tobago. I am currently an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher to adults and I also tutor children in Miami. Prior to that, I taught English in Daejeon, South Korea to children and teenagers. I have always loved sport, particularly football (soccer) so becoming involved with an organisation like Malalo, which uses sport to get youth off the streets, was an incredible opportunity for me. As an ESL teacher with an academic background in International Relations, I always try to incorporate global themes wherever possible in my classes.
