Why Me?  Why Now?

A Bit of Background

To me, everyday represents an opportunity to pursue purpose and happiness, even in the time of global pandemic or personal crisis.  I recognize deeply how I live today is how I live my life.

The awakening for me to bring Global Education Destinations to life came in late Spring 2020 - sensing my ailing mother in Taiwan needed me, my colleagues in the USA at a loss with what to do with the international students, and the whole world in turmoil with difficult moral and political decisions, I decided to create the future I want instead of sitting back and see what happens.

I was an international student myself, spending years pursuing my MA at the University of Maryland and then my MBA at Johns Hopkins University.  After hosting travel TV shows in Taiwan, I helped Discovery Channel launch in China.  Followed by my ownership of a local Dream Dinners franchise, I created the Global Programs at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Maryland.  I felt it in my heart that it was time to answer my new calling.

Drawing from my childhood dream of living in a borderless world, and building on my experience of international communication, blessed with all the amazing smart people I have come in contact with, Global Education Destinations was born out of sheer imagination, passionate words and the kind support of fellow believers.

Where we end up depends on us.  I hope to see you on this journey of pursuing a life of purpose and happiness.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Yihung Mohs
