The first portion of this blog is from when I spent my last semester of college abroad in Valparaiso, Chile at the Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso, finishing up my requirements for my dual degree in Hispanic Studies and International Affairs. I lived with a host family in the neighboring city of Vina del Mar during spring semester of 2005.
July 2007- May 2008 I took off again, this time my travels took me to the other side of the globe - spending three months in Alexandria, Egypt studying Arabic and then 6 months outside of Accra, Ghana working at a UN Refugee camp for Liberians - with lots of travel in between (Jordan, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Togo).
August 2008 - June 2009 I taught English to kindergarten children over in Doha, Qatar.
Now it's August 2009 and I'm a graduate student at the American University in Cairo - obtaining my Master's in International Human Rights Law and Forced Migration and Refugee Studies. I'll be here for 2 years...

"As long as possible live free and uncommitted. It makes but little difference whether you are committed to a farm or the county jail.... If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." -- Henry David Thoreau
