I can be Out?
Follow Up from Sudan discussion. Beyonce's The Lion King: The Gift album. Did you know that 2019 is The Year of Return to Ghana? The topic at hand: How to Move Abroad? Moving abroad is a big decision and life outside the U.S. can be tricky but planning makes the process easier.  We talk how to move abroad (focus on Europe), how to make it make happen, and most importantly how to adjust to your new home. Notes:  1.) To clarify,  Europe is indeed both classist and racist. 2.) Passive Income is a type of side hustle.  3.) If you have a degree from an accredited University that will suffice for the Auxiliares de Conversación en España program. It is not a requirement that you have studied English.
