Me, Dan Mueller
I was utilizing my Intercultural Communication degree from Saint Louis University as a Peace Corps volunteer on the island country of Jamaica. Hobbies/personal interests (not limited to): hiking, permaculture, and social equity

Jamaica is the third largest Caribbean island, located approximately 90 miles south of Cuba. As a former British colony, Jamaica is an English-speaking country; however, most Jamaicans speak Patois, a Jamaican dialect derived from several languages. What makes Jamaica’s culture most interesting is the people. Hospitable, warm, friendly, and gracious are just among the many ways to describe Jamaicans.
As the preeminent international service organization of the United States, the Peace Corps sends Americans abroad to tackle the most pressing needs of people around the world. Peace Corps Volunteers work at the grassroots level toward sustainable change that lives on long after their service—at the same time becoming global citizens and serving their country. When they return home, Volunteers bring their knowledge and experiences—and a global outlook—that enriches the lives of those around them.
Feel free to contact me any time with questions about my Peace Corps application and clearance processes, and I’ll try my best to get back to you in a Jamaican timely fashion.
