Its amazing to look back and realize how much one has gone through to get to this point. My decision to apply for the Peace Corps was based on where I was in my life at that very second. It was then that I realized I wanted to live in a different country other than my own and help whereever is needed. I wanted to breath their air, eat what they eat, sleep where they sleep, and hear what they hear. The application process took approximately 6 months until I heard I was nomiated to travel to Namibia, Africa. There I was to be teaching mathematics at the primary and secondary level. I couldn't tell you how excited I was.
Lets fast forward to the present. In less than a week, I am going to be traveling to Washington D.C. for the staging process. Along with learning many workshops that go along with joining the Peace Corps, I will be meeting my fellow volunteers whom I will be traveling to Namibia with. This is an exciting time, I just graduated college in May with a teaching cerification in elementary education and mathematics. I have no committments to any job, I am free! The adventure that awaits me is one that cannot be explained, I have no words that can fully express all the emotions that I am going through right now. Its only going to be a matter of time where I will be walking on the continent of Africa! For now, all I can do is think, ponder, write and explore through reading the country I am going to be living for 27 months. I am ready for this experience, lets roll!
