I haven’t been so great on writing a blog, and for that, I apologize. I wanted my entries to relate to William and Mary and it took me until now to realize that everything I’m currently doing traces back to my time at W&M. Whether it was the numerous study abroad and service opportunities throughout my undergraduate experience that peaked my interest in international affairs and traveling, the advice of a fellow graduate who led me to NPH (the orphanage in Guatemala where I spent over a year teaching English), or friendships cultivated during my time at W&M with incredible individuals who have supported, encouraged, and inspired me to do something different…. All of these things gave me the courage to take a less-traditional route following graduation and for that, I will be forever grateful to William and Mary. So from now on, I’m just going to blog about my travels – or the month that I have left of them. And from there, it will be the adventure of moving back to Washington DC, entering the so-called “real world” and my attempts, with countless other people, to find a job. Wish me luck.
