How are you? I am not sure if you remember me. We traveled some together during our time in Venezuela. I came across some pictures the other day of you and some of the other volunteers in the PETT program. It has been such a long time. I had a hard time remembering names.
I see from your information above that you are in higher education. I went that way as well. I have been at Northwestern Oklahoma State University for the last 19 years.

It was good to see your name and read some things about where you are and what you are doing. Take care of yourself.

Hi. My name is Joanne. I am a Venezuelan American who is interested in volunterring for the Peace Corps. I want to volunteer in Venezuela, but the Peace Coprs are currently inactive there. I was wondering if there was any way that I could assist in making it possible to volunteer in Venezuela. It is very complicated to find information on volunteering in Venezuela considering I am in America. If you have any information that can assist me in any way in these matters please feel free to email me.
(joannedel52@gmail.com) Thank you very much.
