Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I arrived back in the USA at the end of December 2009, so right now I am working a temporary job for an accounting firm as I wait to hear back from graduate schools. I hope to start a Language, Literacy and Culture or International Education masters program in Fall 2010.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was a very empowering experience that helped me become a stronger, more flexible, more social and humble person. I am not afraid to fail anymore and have found that anything I want to do is worth a try. I think about my time in Macedonia everyday.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I am looking for the RPCV group in Indiana.
