Review from Instructor Betsy J Blosser to John Hoban: Thank you so much for your presentation on Indonesia to my Electronic Media and Social Justice (BECA 581) class on Monday, April 14th. It was a fabulous presentation! You really hit on a lot of the things my students wanted to know, both through what you had planned and through your answers to their questions. (See?  I told you they would ask a lot of questions!) I LOVED the PowerPoint presentation with your description of things we needed to know about Indonesia and the description of your Peace Corps assignment.

Review: Thank you Frank!
Students actually came by the office to ask for both your contact information and help in meeting with a recruiter.  I reached out to the SF recruitment office to reconnect and hope to have both recruiters and RPCV's often from now on.  Your presentation provided some thoughtful insight. Would you mind my passing along your e-mail to students interested in an informational interview?,  Inés C. Barbosa, Interim Director of Career Services
