Përshëndetje! My name is Eric Uribe and this is the blog of a Peace Corps volunteer in Kosovo!
I arrived in Kosovo on June 2, 2018 and became an official Peace Corps Volunteer on August 10, 2018 along with 35 other volunteers in Kos5. I am serving as an education volunteer where I am a TEFL teacher in a local school.
I created this blog for these four simple reasons:
- I believe every part of my life should be documented because I know if I blink for even a minute I can miss a whole lot. And I want to be able to go back and relive all of the beautiful moments this experience has/had/will have to offer me.
- My family and friends are 6,400+ miles away and this is my way of keeping them connected while simultaneously sharing the beautiful Kosovar culture with as many people as I can through the posts on my blog.
- I want to showcase what amazing work the Peace Corps does and the changes in the US, my community in Kosovo, and the world (however small) I am making every day by being here.
- And perhaps most importantly, to hopefully inspire future Peace Corps Volunteers who may be interested in everything Kosovo has to offer!
Thanks for joining me on this journey!
