Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE PEACE CORPS WAS SOME OF THE MOST CHALLENGING AND SOME OF THE MOST REWARDING TIMES IN MY LIFE. I AM SO GLAD FOR THE TIME I HAD IN NICARAGUA. I KNOW THAT I HAD RECEIVED MORE FROM THE PEOPLE OF NICARAGUA THAN I GAVE THEM. THEY ARE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL HAPPY PEOPLE. THE CHANCE TO LEARN A NEW CULTURE HAS GIVING ME GREATER INSIGHT INTO SHARING AND CARING FOR OTHERS.
