dreams abroad team travelers writers students teachersOur Dreams Abroad team is the backbone of our organization! Without our treasured team members, Dreams Abroad would not be here as it is today. Our team members form a tight-knit support group for those who live and work abroad, as well as teachers who are teaching in a foreign country. Our team each gives their insight into their own personal experiences of living, teaching, working, traveling, or studying abroad. As diversified as our lives are, we never cease giving one another support to get through the challenges we face abroad.

Therefore, our experiences are as varied as our future plans and goals. Here, you can read more about who exactly makes up our team. Also, each author provides a biography, so our readers can learn more about them. Furthermore, the authors’ articles are also listed in their biography. This makes it easy for our readers to follow any series that the author may be writing about.

Advice, Recommendations and Experiences

dreams abroad team community advice travelOur team is comprised of the very people who bring you their personal advice, recommendations, and experiences. Dreams Abroad is not an organization that can be compared to any other nor does it want to be. Rather, it loves to share each team member’s unique experiences, as their experiences provide immediate support to their fellow team members as well as insight and guidance to their most loyal audiences.  Each member plays a different role in Dreams Abroad, which leads to the site you see before you today!

We Are a Community

Lastly, while our team may not be the largest, it is comprised of real, everyday people. We are a close-knit community that provides support to one another through what can be difficult challenges. We offer one another advice and an open ear. Writing about our experiences are simultaneously ways to process the events in our lives while sharing and learning from our mistakes. Our team is a community, and we would love to share our lives with our readers!
