past three years.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Endless source of stories for my family. Wonderful pictures. I believe that I
probably gained more personally than I contributed. I learned a great deal
about the concept of community, and the value of people vs. things. The
cross-cultural awareness has served me well, and I believe that the
experience has allowed me to relate to a wider number of people,during
my post-service life than had I not had this experience. I Had the
opportunity to grow up; seperate from my parents, and gain some
confidence. I hope that I made a difference to someone, because I had a
wonderful and valuable adventure.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone from my program
Any message for returned volunteers?:
If you're newly returned, be patient with the readjustment process. I didn't
find many friends who could relate to my experience, and it was kind of
lonely for a while; But, it got better.
