my assignment was community health education - however as a nurse I often fuctioned in that capacity - the secondary projects were the greated source of satisfaction - establishing a library, starting a small woodworking business, and helping to form a program that offered free surgical repair of facial birth defects for economically disadvantage children and young adults throughout Guyana

Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
looking for owrk in developing countries in refugee health or disaster relief
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
wouldn't trade the experience for the world and I am glad I toughed out the isolation and remotenes - I think more people should try to risk the experience the person you become is worth everything

To Miss Hope Wall,
Thank you on behalf of the community of Wakapoa, in Guyana, where your service was provided with the most humbleness of heart.
I guess words could never justify yours works as well as our appreciation for the service among other things which you have either provided or started in the community.Been borned and grown in Wakapoa i'm a testomony to the challenges that face the community.
I'm now living in the United States and for me you have set me a great example as well as a challenge to develop my self and to do as much as i possible can to make the life of the people of Wakapoa more productive.
So one again Miss Hope, we thank you
