I recently found out my Peace Corps country assignment is Honduras!
I'm leaving July 11, less than two months from now. I'm so excited! At first I was really suprised by Honduras. Although I've been studying Latin America for the past four years, Honduras hardly ever comes up, so I can't wait to learn all about it. I'm also excited that I'm going back to Central America; it's such an amazing region. I loved my study abroad in Costa Rica.
Of course I'm nervous because I don't really know what to expect and it will be such a change. The experience will be so amazing. I'll be working in municipal development, working with local governments and communities. Yesterday I sent the in-country staff my aspiration statement and resume.

More updates to come!
