Joining the peace corps was the best decision of my life l. Being able to travel the world and provide aid to those less fortunate if such a blessing. #peacecorps #foreignaid #corps4life

“One of Us” is headed overseas with these Peace Corps invitees! These amazing individuals are headed to Cameroon, Indonesia, Morocco, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Rwanda, & Tunisia! Check out oneofusmovement.com for more info about this raw and genuine book about one woman’s challenging service in Uganda. You won’t be able to put it down! 📖 Link in profile ☝🏼

Cameroon does have beautiful #sunsets! On visit to a region mate, @peacecorps Volunteer Daisy captured this image at a lake. The fisherman was sweet enough to take both Volunteers out on his boat.

During my application process I searched and searched for blogs, YouTube channels, Instagram accounts, and much more to see if I could find any "Latino" or brown folx' experience with Peace Corps. I found very very little. Maybe I wasn't very thorough, but I felt like I searched forever. This is why I've decided to post about this, and will continue to post during service. Peace Corps is something I've wanted to do for a while now, and it was my goal to volunteer after graduation. I literally have 10 days left in CA and 12 in the U.S of A. I've gone through so many emotions that I can't even explain or begin to organize. I am both terrified and incredibly excited! But as a brown Latina who is very close to her family, the goodbyes are getting harder and harder. Still, I am so excited for the journey ahead, it took a lot for it to come, but it is finally here!

¡Feliz día patronal a mi querida comunidad!
Every community in Paraguay has a day dedicated to its own unique patron saint, and today we celebrated ours in the bitter cold with a procession, lots of obnoxiously loud fireworks, asado, sopa, and laughter. I am so proud to call myself another member of this community. Che avy'aiterei ko'ape! #howiseepc #peacecorps #peacecorpsparaguay

Chiriquí is magic ✨

The thing I’ve learned the most being here in Panama is knowing when to take a break. This weekend gave me exactly what I needed to refresh for some really intense work. Here’s to hoping my R&R lasts two more months 🤞🏽 #panama #chiriqui #peacecorps

From June to September, thousands of whales travel from the feeding grounds in the Antarctic to the warm waters of Ecuador for mating. Puerto Lopez, a small fishing village on the Ecuadorian coast, is one of the prime locations to see these aquatic giants up close.

Good Luck Auntie M!! We loves you and miss you already! Have safe travels! ✈️ #peacecorps #missyoualready

She wakes up every morning and prepares breakfast for her husband and sons before they head off to the fields. Then she heads to the village health hut where she works as a nurse, healing and consulting people on all things from lacerations to malaria. After lunch, she heads to her field where she grows food to feed her family and sell what’s left over. It’s a 20min walk, both ways, and here she is doing it in her new dress and carrying dinner on her head. My host mom is an amazing woman and the matriarch of my host family, yet women are still considered weak by some men in Senegal. Clearly they have not opened their eyes to her daily struggles. #peacecorps #peacecorpssenegal #mothers #grit #thatdressthough

All smiles and laughs cause my 3rd year of service was approved! #peacecorps #howiseepc #liberia #pcv

This is the meal that I’ve been waiting for: flija. It’s warm and smells magnificent. #kos4life #peacecorps #peacecorpskosovo #1day1pic1story #iftartime

Day 47: I know I have already posted about the prevalence of masas here in Moldova, but today we had one for a celebration that we don’t often see in America. In Moldova, it is tradition to honor those who have passed with these meals. In the first year, there is a masa every 3 months or so, but afterward, the deceased is honored on their date of passing annually; family members get together, eat, and share stories as a way of honoring their loved ones. Today we remembered the passing of my host dad’s mom who passed away 3 years ago as well as celebrated my host dad’s birthday which was a couple of weeks ago. I found myself holding back tears a couple of times as the realization set in that this would probably be one of the last family masas I attend during my time in Moldova. #peacecorps #peacecorpsmoldova #howiseepc #osutadezile

📷 @peacecorps - Mana Teresinha owns a warung on the beach where she sells fish and katupa every Saturday. 🐟 She and her customers need to wash their hands, and mana Teresinha needs to wash dishes as people come and go. 💦 With the help of @peacecorpstimorleste Volunteer Sherry, mana Teresinha now has a tippy tap to make it easier for her to wash dishes with running water and soap. 💧
