In August, I’ll leave for a year of service in Guyana, Georgetown, South America (don’t worry, I had to google it, too). I’m so incredibly excited to start this new phase of my life in a brand new place! I’ll be going as a volunteer with the Mercy Volunteer Corps and will be with three other volunteers. We’ll live in a home together, in the city, but will live on modest stipends in hopes of reaching solidarity with the Guyanese people. My professional role will be at Mercy Wings Vocational Center as a part of the Adolescent Development Program. While I won’t be home during the entire year, please check back here for (hopefully) exciting and entertaining updates on my journey!
