Amanda's Journey to Kazakhstan

Current Location

Semey, Kazakhstan

Welcome! I am a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Semey, Kazakhstan and I can't wait to share my adventures with you. Join me on my journey to Semey! 


I traveled to Tajikistan for a conference and I had a wonderful experience there! I loved the delicious food, grand buildings and weather that was nice enough for us to eat outside.


As I near the end of my first semester in Kazakhstan, it's time to reflect on some of the things I've learned and, sadly, to say goodbye to you all.

Field Notes

I recently decided to volunteer at the local Red Crescent, which is the Kazakhstan branch of the Red Cross. Here, I have learned about how Kazakhstan helps some of its citizens in need.


I recently traveled to Dushanbe, Tajikistan, by way of Almaty, Kazakhstan. Let's listen to some of the music I heard along the way, and take a look at a few of the sights, too!
