Sarah, yes I remember you. How are you doing? I am working with Chemonics International on a USAID-funded contract in the Philippines. Time does fly by fast, by the end of this year I will have spent the last 20 years living abroad and it all started with my Peace Corps assignment in Jamaica!

It is amazing to think that 20 years ago, I left the U.S. for my Peace Corps assignment in Jamaica. I never imagined that it would change my life so much that I would end up continuing to work on development issues around the world for the next 20 years of my life. I have now lived in Jamaica, Bolivia, and the Philippines and have traveled, worked and lectured across this amazing planet of ours!

My Peace Corps experience helped open my eyes to the challenges of the developing world and this encouraged me to dedicate my life to face these challenges to the best of my abilities and make this world a better place, likkle by likkle and hand in hand as they say in Jamaica!
