Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I am currently working in state government. I am working to get our agency's documents translated into languages our clients read. I also educate staff on cultural differences and how to interact with persons from different backgrounds.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I am very glad I had the opportunity. I feel that I learned more and grew more in the two years I was in Peace Corps than any other time. I also encourage others to listen to the world and learn from it.
