Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:

I'm married to my husband Parfait and we live in the DC suburbs. We have our two girls from Cameroon; Laure and Martine, living with us. We also have three more children. Camille was born in 2000, Jacques in 2003, and Grace in 2005. The kids are awesome and a lot of fun!
We are both teaching French in the Montgomery County Public Schools. I am also working with ESOL students and teachers. Parfait is almost finished with his work to get administrative credentials.

Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:

I remember fondly my days in Ngoundere and Ngoulemakong (and Yaounde too)! Parfait and I are part of a Cameroonian-style "reunion" here, so we enjoy times like the good old days!

Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:

I would welcome hearing from everyone from PC Cameroon. Fellow rpcvs, formateurs, PC staff.

Any message for returned volunteers?:

Send us an email and we'll get back in touch!
I loved Jolie's great quote, so I'll add this one of my own:

Une bougie ne perd rien en allumant une deuxieme.

So as to not sound too "mature", I'll add one of Gaby's favorites:

Drink beer, the water's polluted!
