I am a 30 year old Motswana man who came to Turkey in pursuit of something special. I have found what I have been looking for in this extraordinary country, which is why I have been living here for 10 years now. My adventure in Turkey has led me into various avenues, and one of those is my teaching career. I am currently working as an English teacher at Eyuboglu college. I am passionate about learning about new cultures and meeting people that have had different experiences than mine. I believe that it is a great privilege to be able to experience someone else's culture.

Marching to the beat of my own drum

Life is indeed a work of art. We have to work on our masterpiece every day to make sure that it turns out to be something that we can step back and marvel at. I have had to work a lot in my life in order to achieve a lot of things. I had to put in a lot of work to do academically well and be able to travel abroad. Work and effort was also needed when I had to integrate into a society with which I had never had contact, and I had to work to make my life more purposeful. There will always be hard work to do in order to achieve all our dreams, which is why I find a lot of fulfillment in not having everything right now. I know that I am an artist at "work" cleaning his paint brushes everyday. I am constantly working on my ongoing masterpiece called "life".
