I'm going to Mali, Africa with the Peace Corps!!!

After over a year of being in the application process, I have finally received my offical invitation to service with the US Peace Corps and the assignment offered me is small enterprise development in Mali, West Africa. I can't really express how excited I am. I had hoped to get an assignment in French-speaking Africa and specifically Mali was the country I found myself most interested in. So, wow.

I am scheduled to start around August 12th, so the next months will be super busy. Tying things up, packing, saying goodbyes. It makes me tired just thinking about it. But I am so thrilled about the opportunity to get out there and attempt to help aleviate poverty in Africa, even if my contribution will be a tiny one.

Thanks to everyone in this community for walking with me along the way of my application path and I will be counting on your moral support in the days ahead.

What great news! I was hoping you had heard from them by now. That is so wonderful that you have been placed just where you wanted to go. This is so exciting. It will be a challenge for you once you get there and it will be a challenge just getting prepared for it. You have many new adventures ahead of you. Thanks for posting the news!

You know I wish the best for you always.
