I am a 21 year old high school dropout who's only had freelance work experience. Is it possible for me to join the peace corps? I was a angry stupid teenager that got mixed up in a bad situation but have never done anything seriously unjust. I believe joining the peace corps is something that I really want and would be a very good decision for my life. I understand that a lot of organizations don't except dropouts because of the possibility of them giving up but I'm a different person now who is starting to wake up and realizing the mistakes I've made and what I want out of life. I also understand that education is a very important part of the corps. I truly am not a very smart person but I think I'm good at adapting. Even though it's been so long since I've been in school and it was hard for me I would try my hardest & never give up. Thanks
