An experience in my life that has shaped my decision to spend a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA:

Since childhood, helping others has been a huge part of my mission in life. Coming from a violent under developed country, I have had the opportunity to experience the desperate need for volunteer services. I truly believe that in order for us to be successful members of our community, we must help those that are less fortunate and contribute as much as we can to the general public. My 3 years in Peru with Peace Corps not only changed the direction of my life but also affirmed my continuing need to serve.

Three words that best describe me:

Honest, compassionate, committed

One thing I can’t live without:

Hugs!

Something I like to do for fun:

Yoga, travel & explore new places, meet new people and share life experiences over some coffee/beer/wine.
