I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer from 2006 to 2008 in a small town called Bratslav in Ukraine. While there, I taught English to 5th through 11th graders. I also taught seminars on HIV/AIDS and human trafficking, and wrote a water sanitation grant.
This is my blog from when I was there: Miss Virginia in Ukraine (so named for all the programs I had taught and tutored at where I was known as Miss Virginia).
Here are some highlights:
