You feel your English is never good enough, your confidence is very low, you are away from family and friends so you feel there is no support and you don’t have time to research as you have to work crazy hours just to make enough money to pay for rent and food. You should not have to flush all the years of study down the toilet and settle for a job or life that is less than you are qualified for!
