    EP 14: How Teaching Abroad Can Help You Pay Off Your Student Loans

    Some students end up racking up a lot of debt while engaging their degree program. While many can easily repay loans and gain financial freedom, some are stuck and are limited in their options. In recent years, many qualified students have taught English as a foreign language in Japan, Korea and China just to name a few. On this episode, I interview Olivia, a talented Jamaican living in Japan who managed to not only get student loans off her back but also enhanced her career while living in Japan. Have a listen!
