    July 31, 2017The best thing about being a PCV….I don’t want to overdo it by talking about how great Peace Corps is. You know those surveys where they ask if you would recommend the thing you’re being surveyed about to someone else? I would recommend...

    July 24, 2017The biggest challenge I overcame…Without complaining about food again, I can say that the biggest challenge I overcame was the feeling of constantly being unhealthy, rundown, and isolated.

    July 10, 2017How my two years of service have changed meThis is a tough one. A lot of the things that other PCVs say when you ask them how they’ve changed aren’t things that we notice ourselves. One PCV in my group mentioned that when she was home a few months ago,...

    July 3, 2017I will never forget…Narrowing two years down to just one or two things I will never forget is tough. I will certainly never forget the first time I had sakau in Pohnpei (drinkable mud, mmmm) or the first time I chewed betel nut with my PST...
