I am an English teacher in Rwanda through the United States Peace Corps. Besides that, I am a young twenty-something woman from Colorado (even though sometimes I like to think I’m from the American South) that graduated from Hendrix College in 2011. I greatly enjoy spending time with people that I love, journaling, eating burritos (or really, just eating), volunteering, traveling, laughing, hiking, going on long walks, and playing field hockey. I think it’s important to find what you are passionate about in life and find a way to make that a part of who you are. My guilty pleasures include watching the Bachelorette, watching choregraphed dances from So You Think You Can Dance, making music videos, and dancing (trust me, I’m not very good). I LOVE reading (currently, my favorite book is The Help) and I tend to read inspirational quotes (especially from Dr. Martin Luther King and Oprah) for fun. Mostly, I try to thank God everyday for both the good and the bad, because ultimately, I am doing what I love, and I feel so blessed for it.
“What we would like to do is change the world- to make it a little simpler for people to feed, clothe and shelter themselves as God intended for them to do. And we can change the world: we can work for the oasis, the little cell of joy and peace in a harried world. We can throw our pebble in the pond and be confident that its ever widening circle will reach around the world. “
