I’m Amanda Barrows: a Maine-native and TEFL instructor. I received a B.A from UMF in International Relations in 2014 and am living my dream of world travel and teaching English. My eventual goal is to get a Master’s in peace studies, so as to become a mediator of foreign conflict. I’m passionate about foreign languages, cultures, making new friends around the world, and making a positive impact. For me, every interaction and encounter is special and I never know who I will meet during my travels. I am open-minded and open to having adventures and to make the most of life.
Wanderlust is real: I want to go everywhere! Thus far, I have visited: Argentina, Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, Paraguay, Spain, Turkey, Switzerland, South Korea and of course, the United States. I would love to talk about any of these countries and exchange travel tips and experiences.
