I'm Jennifer Post, I am currently a student at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan. I am 24 years old and I am about to begin a very unique adventure. I am participating in the Master's International Peace Corps program, I will receive a Master's of Science in Civil Engineering upon completion of a 27 month service in the Peace Corps. I will use my education and experience in engineering, providing technical assistance for water development projects in Uzbekistan. I am really excited about my upcoming journey to such a unique place, I will need to learn the language, I will get to live with a host family, and live in a very different place than what I'm used to.
I am originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin. Go Packers. Many people in the United States have no idea where Uzbekistan is, well it's in Central Asia and formerly part of the Soviet Union. It's located between China and Eastern Europe. Uzbekistan is one of the two doubly landlocked countries of the world, but it does have a border with the Aral Sea.
If you are reading this and have any comments on Uzbekistan or are a Peace Corps volunteer that would like to give a future volunteer some advice, please do. I hope I can maintain this site while I'm serving, I want it to be a place where family, friends, and strangers can go to learn about my experiences, and communicate back to me. We'll see.
Thanks for reading.
