Hi everyone! I dropped off the boards about 6 months ago when my membership ran out. I posted a few times about my Peace Corps applications and wanted to update for anyone who was interested.
I was supposed to leave in September, but I was told that the group I was supposed to be in was full and I was cut from that program. However, a few weeks later I was given an assignment to Madagascar leaving in February. I’ll be an envrionment volunteer and I could not be more excited. I was afraid I would not be assigned, and am glad to still be able to serve and make a contribution to the people of Madagascar. This is pretty much the best assignment ever for me. I’m big into animals and wildlife, and Madagascar has a lot of unique species there. Unfortunately, it also has a lot of poverty and other problems where they needc help.
Any questions? Fire away.
