Aaron Gordon: An Unexpected Journey

TTC intern after the internship

As the summer of 2012 ended, Aaron Gordon, a Teach & Travel China intern in 2010, finished a year of Volunteering at a Peace and Reconciliation centre in Northern Ireland. At this point, some would choose to work, some would choose to study something but not Aaron who simply stated ‘I think I’m going to […]

And no I assure you this isn’t the food that we serve in the training centre’s canteen; but rather […]
