2000: Emmanuela Jeune served in Mauritania in Sani(village) and Atar beginning in 2000
Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Emmanuela Jeune can be contacted at emmajeuneayahoodcom
Country of Service: Mauritania
Training Group: Health and Water Sanitation
Cities you served in: Sani(village) and Atar
Arrival Year: 2000
Departure Year: 2002
Work Description: Health and Water Sanitation volunteer. I organized AIDS campaigns in Sani and in Atar. Also, I participated in polio vaccinations.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Currently I have a teaching position as a Multicultural Student Advocate/Parent Liaison with Orange County Public Schools (Orlando, Florida). I provide academic and social support to ESOL students who are failing. I travel to 13 schools in the county to mentor/tutor Middle and High School students. Will be taking classes in January 2003 toward certification in Psychology. Have future plans to return to Africa.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I am truly blessed with all the experiences that I acquired during my time in Mauritania. I am so glad now that I did not give up after one year. I have learned that I have to accept what I cannot change. I thank God for the PC staff, volunteers and Mauritanians for putting up with me.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
I really would encourage Peace Corps Mauritania volunteers to write a book about their experiences.
