“I am currently serving in the beautiful country of Perú as a Youth Development Volunteer for the United States Peace Corps. The Anth/Soc department prepared me to be a critical thinker and global citizen, with a passion for service and volunteer work. My capstone project explored EOU students’ attitudes and behaviors with respect to the environment and conservation. In Peace Corps I am working with local institutions to engage and train youth and other community members to undertake and complete projects focused on sustainability. After service I plan to study Mental and Clinical Health Counseling with a focus in (Outdoor) Adventure Therapy and continue working with youth. ¡Mejores deseos!”
