I am a 27-year old female, Returned Peace Corps Volunteer from Malawi. I currently work for the DC government Child & Family Services Agency as a social worker. Biking, jogging, hiking, and pretty much anything outdoors are what I enjoy! For Peace Corps, I was in the health sector doing HIV/AIDS education among youth and capacity-building, i.e. proposal-writing facilitation, among community groups. It was one of the best experiences of my life, and I'm happy to share it!

This dance is specific to the northern region of Malawi. Performed by women only, this video was taken in the village of Misuku in Chitipa district.
This was my main mode of transportation when I was in Peace Corps Malawi (06-08) to travel from the village of Kapoka to Misuku where I lived (Chitipa district, bordering Tanzania). It was about a 45-minute ride up winding hills on a dirt road which turned into the red sea during the rainy season. A fun adventure nonetheless!
