Young female from Texas moving to Singapore in December!

Postby akprestage » Tue, 01 Dec 2009 12:41 am

Hello All,
My name is Anna and I am 23 years old. I am moving to Singapore at the very end of December to teach English at a private school for the next two years. This is my first time moving abroad and I am SO excited! Since I only have a few more weeks before the big move, I thought it would be a good idea to try and get some contacts with other expats who have had or will have the same experiences I will. I have a lot of questions and there are times when it is all very overwhelming, so I would love to know that I know people who have done the same things. Any advice or anything at all would be so appreciated! Thanks!
Love the Life you Live
