Hey Everyone!

This is my 1st post to CIEE's blog and I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Alexis Pellerin. I'm from Syracuse, New York. I am currently teaching in Chongqing, China. I don't have the ordinary job of teaching for a school. I work in a government office for Chongqing Multinational Human Resources Center, Chongqing Talent. I teach English to flight atttendant trainees. It's a very interesting job. I'll talk more about my job in one of my later posts. I am 22 but turning 23 tomorrow actually. It's weird to be away from my family and friends for my birthday but I am in China with my new family. I love travelling and exploring the world. I studied abroad through CIEE in Alicante, Spain for my junior year of college. I graduated from St. John Fisher College with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies and Spanish. I love photography so I will be sure to post as many pictures as I can. I arrived in Chongqing on February 9th, 2014. I had a week of orientation at the center I work at through CIEE and we stayed across the street at the California Inn. I started working on February 13th and here we are almost 7 weeks later. I want to talk about my lifein China, things that may be weird or unusual to foreigners, the food, working here, and my travels and experiences. Unti next time :)
