My name is Shay Jordan and I am a first year mathematics undergraduate at University of East Anglia with aspirations of becoming a mathematics teacher at secondary level.
I am a second degree black belt and instructor in the Korean traditional martial art of Kuk Sool Won, with over fourteen years of experience and over six years of experience in teaching students of all ranks and ages on both a one on one basis and as groups of up to around thirty. During my years of training, I have competed in continental tournaments, accumulating over fifteen medals from copper to gold, as well as networking with other practitioners from all over the world.
I have a keen interest in travelling and seeing other cultures and have been extremely lucky to have travelled to five of the seven continents numerous times since a very young age. In 2017 I was able to volunteer at the Bangkok Mercy Centre orphanage in Thailand for the day, taking a group of around twenty non-English-speaking orphans on a day out to a water park using money from a pot of £2500 which was raised by my family in memory of my grandad who had worked with the orphanage multiple times.
I have been blogging since the age of eleven, however took an almost two year hiatus during my time at sixth form whilst studying for A Levels, but I am now back with a fresh start on a new platform, ready to expand and develop the blog beyond what it was before.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy creating and writing it and I’d love to hear from my readers in the comments section below my posts. Thank you for stopping by to learn a little more about me!
