I remember being overcome with an anticipation of the unknown.
I found myself insatiably interested in answers, knowledge of this foreign family, and how their lives differed from mine.
I am a fast learner and would consider this service an exciting challenge.
I would be honored to utilize my knowledge and skills to serve as a Peace Corps volunteer in whatever country I am needed to help support health, agricultural, and/or environmental education and growth.
*What previous experiences can you highlight that could help you succeed in the Peace Corps?
*Are you willing to gain additional experiences, perhaps additional volunteer experience here stateside, between applying and getting on the plane?
Are you self-motivated without someone directing you?
*Are you truly open to being immersed in another culture, even if it means sacrificing your own comfort and preferences in order to assimilate?
As a young man I had the opportunity to assist in building a house for a poverty stricken family in Mexico.
There were fourteen of them; all living in an old rusty RV save for the father.
