Stories from Ukraine-McGrew, RPCV

Hi, my name is Jake McGrew and I just joined BARPCV. I was sent to Ukraine in September as part of the TEFL program. My training site was a very small town called Kozelets, which was an hour away from Kyiv (and Chernobyl..) and I was living with a single mother who had a son my age who was married and living in Kyiv. My host mom (Natasha) was the "cool mom" and had a facebook and everything. I loved running at the nearby stadium with her every night, even when it started snowing in late November. Around this time is when the EuroMaidan protests began, but even being an hour away our town was unaffected, until swearing-in. We actually had to be sworn-in a day early because we didn't know if we would be able to safely make it to the Embassy.
