Добрий день! IAMA Peace Corps volunteer currently serving in Ukraine, AMA!
Hello there everyone!
My name is Connor O'Brien, I'm 24 and after graduating from American University in 2016, I joined the Peace Corps, and went to live in rural Ukraine. The Peace Corps is an American government agency that strives to improve the lives of people all over the world, and create international friendship and understanding. Peace Corps volunteers (PCVs) serve for a period of 27 months abroad. I work as a TEFL (teaching English as a Foreign Language) volunteer at a secondary school in Ukraine. Being in Ukraine has been an amazing opportunity for me, and I have loved working with the people here, and I would like to share with you my experiences and answer your questions about the Peace Corps and Ukraine. Please note, this post does not represent the official views of the Peace Corps.
Small plug: I'm doing a camp Model UN with several other amazing volunteers this summer, and we are currently fundraising to make it happen.
EDIT: I realized that the proof photo was for a different account. I changed it shortly after because I didn't want people thinking this was an official account. Sorry. New proof: https://imgur.com/a/bSy2R99
EDIT 2: Alright everyone, thanks for all of your questions! It's past my bedtime here, so I'm shutting down for the night. Anyone who has more questions, please feel free to PM me.
EDIT 3: I'm blown away by how big this got! Thanks everyone for your questions, and thanks for checking out and donating to Camp Model UN, we really appreciate it. I'm at work today teaching, but I'll try to answer any last stragglers thorough the day during my breaks. If you want to talk more, reach out to me and PM me. Thanks!
