I was a university English teacher--taught fisheries engineers and researchers in RIM and future teachers at the ENSUP teacher training college in Mali
Other Countries you served in, Training Group Name Arrival Year, Departure Year, Work Description:
We were evacuated from RIM and sent to Mali...I knew the "Mauritanian refugees" best...those of us who stayed in Mali survived the coup d'etat, and the following year I went back to serve once again in RIM...loved Mali but felt fortunate to go back to my first PC country.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Oh man...got married, have two great boys...we lived in Angola for 5 1/2 years worked for Catholic Relief Services and in the Intl. French School, then Guinea for 6, worked for USAID in Guinea and Sierra Leone, worked for Chemonics for a while, and now I'm in the Press Office of the Peace Corps HQ
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Peace Corps was great, TOTALLY changed my life and took me out of the arts and headfirst into development work...crazy years of service but no regrets, it's all good, I'd love to reconnect with a number of my former PCV colleagues, and other folks around Africa and in other parts.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Too many names to name...my name is now Laura Lartigue but my maiden name is Milnor, please feel free to contact me if that sounds familiar.
