I was an Ag-Fo volunteer in the CRD region of The Gambia. I have since returned and started work in the non-profit sector with a focus on youth and community. I earned my Masters in Public Administration in the Spring of 2010 from the University of Washington.

John was a driver for Peace Corps in the Gambia. He had a love for fish, was a little rough around the edges and loved a good laugh. This is a picture we took during a break in driving on mail run. You can see how lush and beautiful the earth is during rainy season and how rich the soil is. Great for growing crops, but not necessarily for driving.
Mail was delivered monthly via the Peace Corps mail van which two volunteers participated in. This was an amazing opportunity to see the entire country, visit volunteers in their villages and spend some quality car time with Driver John who is one of the most dedicated and personable local you could meet. This picture was taken in Basse when we rolled into town.
