About me: I grew up in California and decided not to go far to get my BA in Environmental Studies and Geography. I was lucky enough to travel a bit during my undergrad and that gave me the urge to leave my comfort zone and do something different. Soon after graduating I signed up for the U.S. Peace Corps and after year of paperwork and not knowing where I would go I ended up in Jamaica. I served 2 years in a rural village in Hanover where I worked on community development, environmental education, land rehabilitation, and much, much, much more. When my service was over I decided to stay on another year to work with the Jamaica Cocoa Farmers Association doing outreach/workshops and to coordinate a 3 week walk across Jamaica to bring focus to diversity, a changing landscape, and the lack of attention given to much of the population. I am transitioning once again to another country and culture for 2 years to work on my Masters. With this blog I would like to share my experiences with school, culture, food, frustrations and adventures that I come across in Germany.
