This report will provide a summary of professional and academic activities related to my service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kazakhstan, Central Asia.

This report is first and foremost the story of my Peace Corps experience, told from the perspective of an NGO Development Peace Corps Volunteer (PCV) serving at youth development organizations and educational institutions in northern Kazakhstan. The foundation for my service has been rooted in my graduate studies at the Illinois State University Stevenson Center and through my Peace Corps training.
