This is my record of my personal journey in the Peace Corps and my life afterwards. I am a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer from Ghana and Foreign Service Officer.
I served as an Agriculture Volunteer from 2011 to 2013. I worked with cashew farmers to educate about business literacy, improved farming practices, and association building. I also worked with SAP Research on a smartphone application project that allows electronic cashew purchases providing transparency in the buying process.

After my Peace Corps service, I wanted to continue my dream of giving back and providing opportunities to others. I took the Foreign Service written exam in June 2013 and passed the Foreign Service Oral Assessment in January 2014. I joined the 178th Foreign Service Generalist class in June, 2014.
I graduated with a degree in marketing in May 2010. I have worked in the natural gas and advertising industries before joining Peace Corps.
