Anything else you want to share: Over a year and a half ago, I moved to a remote Alaskan village to teach High School English. I had never visited the state but I took the plunge anyway and moved over four thousand miles away. People would comment about how I was brave, naive, stupid, or some combination of the three. In the beginning, there were times that I was convinced they were right. However, I don't regret my decision for one second. I have learned more about myself, human growth, other people, and Alaskan Native cultures than I could have ever dreamed of. I say all of this in case you needed a sign to push yourself out of your comfort zone. THIS IS YOUR SIGN!
