Tomorrow is the day! It's the night before my greatest adventure yet and I can't even put into words how I feel: anxious, excited, nervous, thrilled, overwhelmed, tired, sad, but most importantly overjoyed to know that I will be doing something so rewarding and giving. I doubt I'll be able to sleep tonight. As much as I will miss everyone, it will fly by so fast! Just two years! And imagine the stories I'll have! With limited internet access, I'll try to post as often as possible. In the meantime, I'll be keeping a journal every night and updating it here.
Puusgo! Life's adventures are not just what you make them, but how you tell their stories. This is my attempt. For the next two years, I'll be a Non-Formal Education Volunteer in Burkina Faso, Africa for the Peace Corps. Between tutoring girls and boys in math and science, giving presentations on HIV/AIDS, hygiene, and malaria, and talking to parents about the importance of education, I want all my friends and family to be a part of my greatest adventure yet!
