Hi! My name is Sarah and I’m currently a Peace Corps Volunteer in Thailand. I’m originally from New Jersey, and recently graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in engineering. In the midst of applying for engineering jobs and attempting to figure out what I truly wanted to do after graduation, I decided to apply to the Peace Corps. Peace Corps was something I had been interested in for a long time, but always in a, “Wow, Peace Corps would be so cool…you’d have to be so adventurous to do that!” kind of way. I mean, really, who would be crazy enough to leave their family, their friends, their home, for 27 months to go live in a developing country, while getting paid next to nothing? Oh right, I would! Here, you can follow my journey and hopefully get an idea of what life in Thailand is like- the third goal of Peace Corps is “to help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans”.
