A Big Leap

I have always been one to play it safe. Maybe too safe, I’ve come to realize. After some thrilling smaller ventures away from my familiar life, I’m ready to take a big leap. Follow along on my volunteer journey to India.

About January 31, 2008

If you don’t know me and stumbled upon this blog (I’d imagine there are very few), I suppose the basics are that I’m 23, I live in New York City.  I’ve been working in the office of a lovely preschool, managing the information of kids applying to private kindergartens, which is just as crazy a process as you may have heard.  I always taught in preschools before and found myself missing face time with the kids.  I have a BA in psychology and have an interest in eventually working in the area of adoption/attachment/orphaned children/foster care.  I regret never studying abroad in college and after watching my younger sister take a gap year and volunteer in Guatemala and Tanzania, I decided I needed to stop holding myself back and just go. Hence, my big leap.

Disclaimer: to those of you who know my sister and her beautiful flowery prose, I am much more of a nonfiction reader and writer.  I want to update you on the happenings of my trip but I apologize for not being Mary!
