A 12-Year Journey Into the Unknown 
B.J. Eavy
For a life-long learner, it's never too late to make that decision to step out of your comfort zone and live abroad in a developing country.  It will positively impact and change your perspective on life and the people of the world more than you can possibly imagine. B.J. went to Africa with the U.S. Peace Corps and stayed overseas for 12 years.

Wed. April 9, noon - 12:45 p.m.
Adventures and Agriculture in Iraq and Egypt, my experiences as  a Livestock Specialist.

Wendy Rapp
Wendy Rapp is not your typical Livestock Specialist. Although she loves the Missouri beef cattle industry, she has always had a penchant for adventure.  Her love of adventure has taken her to Iraq and Egypt, in which she helped women be more empowered and farmers be more productive.  Imagine going on farm visits in Iraq surrounded by 12 to 16 US Army soldiers, wearing body armor and arriving at your destination in an MRAP (mine resistant ambush protected) vehicle, how would you react when you got out and were suddenly surrounded by Iraqis wanting to know how you could help them?  Imagine going through Cairo and the Egyptian countryside and talking to farmers not only about their farms, but how worried they are about their country going into civil war? Imagine going to the University of Alexandria and talking to professors who desperately want to get the information they know about production agriculture to the farmers who want to be more productive; however, there is not a good way to get  information to the people that need it the most.  Learn something about the culture and a few of good things Wendy did while in these countries.
