Kanoa Mulling

Chiang Mai, Thailand
Princeton University ‘15
Major: English
Hometown: Homewood, IL
Kanoa generally sees the world through the lens of Lord of the Rings--though wishing he were a Gandalf, he’s probably more a Frodo or Merry. His whimsical hobbit nature has driven him to perform in and direct several plays through his school years. He also currently teaches high school English. In Thailand, he will continue with new teaching endeavors, looking to form fellowship...and to cast the ring of power into the mountain of fire.

Gillian Ober

Phang Nga, Thailand
Boston University ‘14
Major in English, Hispanic Language and Literature
Hometown: Colts Neck, NJ
To be resident of Phang Nga, Thailand. You will find me rid- ing the streets, sticky air blowing through my frizzy tendrils, giant Thai moths splattering onto the visor of my helmet, a sweet, rusty, moped between my legs... If you’re into trying copious amounts of new Thai food, exploring caves, waterfalls, and beaches, playing a little guitar, and swapping a funny teacher story or two, you’ve got a friend waiting for you in southern Thailand. Look for the sunburn. You won’t miss me.

Kouta Ohyama

Jishou, China

Remember that guy running around Frist, yelling loudly in Chinese at 3 AM in the morning last weekend? Yeah, that’s Shobhit. It’s Shobhit’s dream that students in Jishou will be comfortable enough to yell English phrases in public areas late at night too. Oh, and puppies. Shobhit dreams a lot about puppies.

Ivanna Patton

Hanoi, Vietnam
University: University of California, Berkeley '15
Major: Environmental Economics & Policy, Public Health
Home Town: San Diego, CA

Unable to bear the harsh winters of San Diego any longer, Ivanna knew it was time to head for a city where the coldest month of the year averages 17 degrees Celsius, or 17*1.8+32 degrees Farenheight. Ivanna does not like doing mental math. She has also tried very hard to not include any puns in her blurb, and asks you to please phogive her if one might have slipped through.

University of Washington ‘14
Major in English Language and Literature
Hometown: Seattle, WA
Julian enjoys going to concerts, eating pizza and cleaning out his inbox. He works at an elementary school in Seattle, where he can often be found reading Dr. Seuss to 1st grad- ers. He’ll be heading to Khon Kaen this year, keeping a few Dr. Seuss hardbacks in his backpack to read and share. He’ll be teaching English and doing his best to learn Thai at Khon Kaen University.

Elizabeth (Lili) Pike

Beijing, China
Harvard University ‘15
Major in Social Studies
Hometown: Woodside, CA.
Lili will soon take a daring leap, adding a space between the two syllables of her name to fit in back in the ‘Jing. Over the course of a sinosoidal decade, China has lured Lili back like clockwork since her first stint in the capital at the second high school attached to the normal university. Now detached from normalcy, Li_Li hopes to spend the year exploring Chi- na with wild abandon while defending its natural resources. Looking forward to many adventures, pengyoumen!
