Krystal Sirman (Survivor Corps in Jordan): Krystal is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where she graduated from Louisiana State University in 2004 with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in sociology. During her undergraduate student, Krystal served as director of Africa Initiative, a student organization, and led 12 university students to Ghana for three months during the summer of 2004 to volunteer. The same year, she participated in the Africa Initiative’s Ghana program for three weeks as a volunteer.

As part of her studies, she travelled to Bangladesh for three weeks to conduct research for her Master’s Capstone Project. After her fellowship, Krystal wrote: "The best part of my fellowship was visiting the few survivors I had the opportunity to visit, as well as spending time with the youth during the summer camp. Every person I met was so positive and confident, and definitely taught me to appreciate what I have and who I am."

Story in the Baton Rouge, LA newspaper

23 Jun

Yesterday, I had my very first interview with a real journalist! Ed Cullen , a features writer for my hometown newspaper The Advocate and a contributor to NPR’s All Things Considered, interviewed me about the work I’m doing this summer with Landmine Survivors Network in Jordan. He asked many poignant and thought-provoking questions, some of which I wasn’t even able to answer! But, I don’t think I did too bad.

The article will be published both in print and online, although I don’t know when. I will keep you all posted. In the meantime, I’m off to the field to visit some survivors!

    If and when you ever come home to BR I would very much like to hear more about your work. I’m a bilateral below the knee amputee (argument with a tractor/bushhog). I am part of an amputee support group and we certainly would love to hear more. A very good friend of mine is Mike McNaughton…a great guy and a landmind survivor.

    all the best,
