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!
Way to go, Amy– I’m proud of you! Be careful but relish the journey, inner AND outer. God speed…
Greetings from CT to Amy! What a great experience! We’ve enjoyed reading abt your adventure! Take care!
