Over recent years I have developed a passion and dream to see the education sphere transformed for the good. It is my strong belief that there is a better way for education to operate, and I hope to use this year of study to discover the ways and methods that such transformations could be seen. Ultimately I would hope to use what I learn to see change at policy level, ideally in an international setting.
My plan and goal was to begin this time of study in autumn 2018, after a time of working and saving towards it. These plans, however, changed when I developed a serious back problem, meaning that I was no longer able to work as a teacher. As a result I had to leave my home in Beijing and return to the UK prior to the date I had planned. So I find myself in a position where I have the invitation to do a Masters at my top choice of university, but without the means I would have had in another years time, had I been able to continue to teach and save.
So I invite you to participate with me on this journey to discover how education, at a policy level, might be altered for the good, impacting communities, society and I hope, generations to come.
