I'm a 32 year Puerto Rican from the Bronx serving in Vanuatu in the South Pacific as an IT Educator at the Onesua Presbyterian College in North Efate, the mainland. Everyday brings a new challenge from running out of petrol for our generator to our computers breaking down due to the heat and humidty, but everyday my students remind me why I chose to pursue my dream of being a PCV.

Spanky the Peace Corps Dog takes a small respite from the heat and humidity in a luxurious muddy puddle after a one mile walk along North Efate's Ring Road. When asked, why? he barked, Don't judge me...a dog's gotta do what a dog's gotta do!"
I fell in love with Taro Laplap after visitng the island of Ambae in Vanuatu. Laplap is a traditional baked dish of Vanuatu made of root crops (taro in this case), beef, cabbage and buckets of coconut milk. mmmmmm!
My Onesua Presbyterian College's Girls' Club meets every Wednesday afternoon to discuss quality of good leaders, embracing our inner Goddess and encouraging confidence in each other. The theme for this afternoon was 'let your inner Goddess shine' in front of the camera. It wasn't until the end of the photo shoot that we realized our 'GIRLS CLUB' poster was missing an L...hence the laughter, now we're known as the GIRRRRRS Club!
Students of Onesua Presbyterian College let loose on the dance floor during one of our Entertainment Friday night events where they had the chance to show off their best custom dance in hopes of winning points for their dorm.
