Confessions of a Peace Corps Volunteer


Greetings from the Gambia

I share some first impressions of my new host nation, The Gambia

Seventy-two Hours in Si-Kunda

After being assigned to the village of Si Kunda, I take a three day trip to meet my family and the village that will be my home for the next two years.

The Sun, the Moon & a Cow

I take my first solo adventure on the Gambian public transportation "system," and oh, what an adventure it is.

The Village Life

Now a couple months in, I discuss the trials and tribulations of living in a West African village.

Drammeh Kunda

My host family, all 25 of them, is the topic of this letter.

Twenty-nine Days of Hunger

I share stories from my first ever Ramadan--the Muslim month of fasting. 

A Year in the Life

After a year in the Gambia, I look back at where I've been, where I'm going, and what I've learned along the way.

It's Not Easy

I take you inside the mindset of some Gambian youth, and the bleak view of the world they often carry with them.

The Path Forward

I reflect after two years n the Gambia, and ask for help in completing one last project.
