Hello! My name is Chris Bailey and I am a 22 year old recent grad from University of Wisconsin-Madison. Madison, Wisconsin has been my home for the last four years and I am very sad to to say goodbye to my fellow Badgers and favorite cheese curds.
I earned a degree in Journalism, with an emphasis in strategic communications. This past summer, I came back to my hometown of Chicago, IL to work at a Word of Mouth Marketing Agency helping brands like Subway and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! build sustainable conversations online and offline. I loved my work; however, I had an itch to do something new and different.
Starting on August 27th, I will be a resident of Bucheon, South Korea. Spending the next year teaching at Bugok Middle School, I will be the only native English speaker at the school of 1,100 children. Bucheon is a city 15 miles south west of downtown Seoul and promotes itself to be the cultural center of the Seoul Metropolitan area. I could not be more excited with my placement and can't wait to start my new life in South Korea.
Please follow along with me throughout my year long journey in South Korea. I promise there will be endless interesting stories and cultural experiences you wont want to miss.
