About Amy J
Amy loves mountains, teaching and young people. She combines these three loves by spending a month a year teaching in village schools around Asia. With the hope of living in a village one day, she spends much of her time meeting youth, reading, writing and attempting to cook, all in the bid to live simply. Recently, she has been blessed with a daughter and so her career title has shifted from Youth Trainer to Mum-in-training.
