Denver, CO, February 27, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- When it comes to job hunting, Audra Murray has a secret weapon.
One month teaching in a Tanzanian classroom on an i-to-i volunteer adventure rounded out her resume and provided more ‘why do you want to be a teacher?’ anecdotes than she knows what to do with.
Murray, 21, an elementary education major at Marshall University, looks forward to using her experiences in Moshi, Tanzania to travel around the world and teach others. Her time abroad has left her ready to adapt to any classroom, and her cross-cultural experience makes her stand out in a crowd.
i-to-i, a meaningful travel provider, sends students to volunteer, intern and teach abroad. Trips are ideal for a one-week spring break getaway, a three month summer adventure, or anywhere in between.
Volunteers work on community development, conservation, teaching, building, media, healthcare and sports coaching projects and internships. These can involve caring for those affected by the AIDS pandemic in South Africa, working with sea turtles in Costa Rica, or building homes for underprivileged families in Honduras.
"I can't wait to travel again and work with more children,” said Murray. “Being completely immersed in a culture so different than mine was an amazing experience!"
