Everything You Need to Know About My Peace Corps Journey


I’m a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who servied in Cameroon for two years and worked in Community Health Education.  While my primary goal of keeping a blog during my Peace Corps journey was to teach the Americans and other people around the world about a country of which they know so little and keep my family and friends updated on my whereabouts, I also hoped that I could educate people about the potential that people with disabilities can offer to the world.  While I have Usher Syndrome, a genetic condition that causes deafness and blindness, nothing kept me from achieving my dreams!  I also realize that many future Peace Corps Volunteers may visit this blog to get insights on one Peace Corps Volunteer’s journey to better prepare themselves for their own journey.
