I am so proud to announce that I have officially been nominated for the Peace Corps! This is exciting news, trust me.
In August 2013 I will leave as a volunteer to serve in the health sector of a country that lives below poverty level. My country will be announced in spring, approximately four months before I depart.

Whoa). I am so proud to have finally chosen a path, let alone a path that I can be extremely proud of.
There is more to come on what exactly this means but until then check my journey so far:
