Safari Njema! Only 1 month until I partake in the most demanding, but rewarding job in my life! All my travel arrangements have been finalized and I have to say it feels a lot more real now that I have a plane ticket in hand.
This is the timeline of my journey so far with the Peace Corps:
December 2011 – Applied for the Peace Corps
December 18, 2012 – Medical pre-clearance issued
January 18, 2013 – Invitation to serve in Kenya, Africa as a CED Volunteer
April 15, 2013 – Final medical clearance issued
April 30, 2013 – Final travel arrangements made
June 2, 2013 – Safari Njema! Flying to Staging in Philly
June 3, 2013 – Staging in Philadelphia
June 4, 2013 – Leave for Kenya!
So that is my journey so far with the Peace Corps. The process to become a volunteer was intense and lengthy, but compared to the experience and impact of my service, it is worth the effort and time! I cannot wait to embark on this adventure and thank everyone who has supported my choice to be a Peace Corps Volunteer.
Asatane kila mtu!!
