• Alumna Speaks about IEW

    213 views 3 months ago
    This year had a huge impact on me. I’ve understood how it’s important to volunteer and contribute to your community, maybe by just doing small, but very meaningful. I’m still a FLEX state representative in the Kiev region. I love being engaged with the FLEX community back home because I feel like this exchange year never ends! It has changed me once and forever, and I’m so grateful to the U.S. Department of State for giving me this incredible opportunity.
