William Frankel is a graduate of Tulane University and currently serves as as an English teacher in Mongolia with the Peace Corps. Before relocating to Mongolia, William served with City Year New Orleans in 2011. After his service with Peace Corps, he plans to attend graduate school for international relations or international business.
What brought me to City Year and the Peace Corps in Mongolia was that I have always been interested in giving back and helping people. I was born with dyslexia and since I was very young many people have helped me with my education. When I was in primary school, my parents were told that I might not be able to attain college because of my struggles in school. With the help of my parents and teachers I was not only able to complete high school but to graduate in the top half of my class. In 2007, I decided to attend Tulane University in Post-Katrina New Orleans. My experience taught me that I have to give back to the world the same opportunities and help that I was given in my youth.
