Just a quick snapshot of who I am

We all embark on this journey of life with our unique missions and stories. My passion lies in the realm of education, specifically in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). I hold a Master's degree in Education with a specialization in TESOL from Edith Cowan University in Australia.

As a PhD Candidate in TESOL, I believe this academic pursuit will significantly broaden my horizons and enable me to make a modest yet impactful contribution to future generations.

My primary interest centers around teaching and conducting research in the field of TESOL. Through teaching, I aim to contribute to the development of learners' ability to effectively communicate with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. Concurrently, engaging in research allows me to gain confidence in implementing evidence-based teaching approaches.

This journey represents an opportunity for continuous growth, where I aspire to play a meaningful role in the dynamic landscape of education and globalization.
