On a Monday just like any other I was in Washington DC, but before the next week began I found myself in a village of three thousand people in Central Ukraine. I didn’t understand a word of the language, and of course, no one understood me either. Just one plane ride turned my life completely upside down – This the story of my Peace Corps Journey.
I describe my path as a Peace Corps Volunteer over the course of a year and a half, including all of the sink or swim experiences that come with starting a new job with a new language in a completely foreign place. From being in Ukraine during martial law, to living through tensions with Russia, to getting evacuated due to Covid-19, my experience in Ukraine was packed with all sorts of once in a lifetime experiences, and now I have the pleasure of sharing them all with you.
If you’re interested in the Peace Corps, Eastern European politics, or what it was like to lose everything after Covid-19, this is the book for you. Thank you, and I hope you enjoy my story.
