The New Official Peace Corps Kenya Facebook Page featuring … GGT

An Amazing honor
Peace Corps Kenya Facebook page

It’s been a busy few weeks. In January, my Peace Corps Story was posted on the Peace Corps site. I worked on the the article with the amazing Carla Coop, a Public Affairs Specialist with the Peace Corps Office of Recruitment and Diversity.

My Peace Corps Story

Over Peace Corps Week, I was asked to participate in a couple of regional and national events. First, I did a Story Slam, via Zoom, for a Peace Corps recruiter, in San Diego.

This was so much fun!

The following day, I was part of a national 60th Anniversary event, in collaboration with Texas A&M University-San Antonio, the World Affairs Council of San Antonio, and Rotary International. More than 150 participants attended the virtual program.

Such the honor to be part of this panel
Good company

Later that week, I also recorded a podcast with Peace Corps Tales. I will post the link, when the broadcast goes live. You can follow Peace Corps Tales on Instagram.

Can’t wait for you to hear this!

This week, I was featured on the Peace Corps Kenya Facebook page. I served in Kenya, in the 1980s. I’m so thankful and proud to be the first RPCV featured on their (relaunched) site. Peace Corps Kenya closed its doors, in 2014, but is preparing to reopen, post COVID.

Finally, I have one more item in the works. This week, The School of Information, at the University of Michigan, interviewed me. I attended graduate school there, in 1992.

Go Blue!

I finished the degree, eleven months later. The College of William and Mary offered me a job, three months before my graduation. Thankfully, they were willing to wait.

Call me lucky 🍀 and blessed! —GGT
