I worked at Peace Corps

ProsIt's an incredible experience and I learned so much about myself. I also learned a lot about grass roots development.

ConsNo clear job description, not a lot of support from administration. It's really really difficult sometimes and I often wanted to go home. But I'm glad I stuck it out.
