#PeaceCorps MAK24: An Introduction


Hello! My name is SD and I will be headed somewhere in North Macedonia to teach English as a Foreign Language. North Macedonia is a Balkan state, surrounded by five countries. For more information about North Macedonia, you can check out Virtual Macedonia. (None of the opinions expressed on this site is endorsed by me, the Macedonian government or the Peace Corps.)

I am 33 years old and have been teaching since 2010. I’ve taught in France, the UK and the USA, and I’ve taught English, Spanish and French. I’m fluent in English, French, German and Swedish. In the Peace Corps, I will be studying Macedonian and possibly Albanian, if I am put in a dual-language area. I love travelling, and hope to visit many of the Balkan countries surrounding Macedonia and Greece.

North Macedonia is going through some interesting changes, including joining NATO and possibly entering into talks to join the European Union. I am sure that on the ground, nothing big will be happening, but I can’t wait to see what happens on the grand stage.

This blog will be updated regularly, and photos will also be posted to my Instagram. I would love to hear from you in the comments, and thanks for visiting!
