A lot has happened since Chinggis Khan conquered the world.

When I decided to move to Mongolia, my family and friends couldn’t conceptualize what my life would be like in this distant land. Perceptions of Mongolia haven’t really been updated since the 13th century and for many in the global West, mention of Mongolia still conjures images of conquering hordes on horseback.

I’m recording this series of video interviews to allow Mongolians to tell their own stories and to help the rest of the world better understand what the country is like today.

This project has been funded by the U.S. Department of State, but the views expressed herein are those of the people speaking, and do not reflect the U.S. Department of State’s endorsement.

    Looking forward to reading more! Will be visiting Mongolia this year and interested in its modern incarnation as well as its storied past.
