The contents of this website are mine personally and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.
Since arriving in Indonesia, I’ve lived with 2 host families, climbed 4 mountains, visited dozens of schools, taught hundreds of students, and shaken innumerable hands. But the numbers aren’t even the half of it.
My name is Cait Hakala and I’m a proud native of Tinley Park, Illinois. I graduated with a B.A. in Comparative Literary Studies and a minor in Spanish from Northwestern University in June of 2013. I joined the Peace Corps and began serving as a Secondary Education English teacher in a public high school in East Java in March 2014.
