Hello Everyone! It has been a long time. This is the first time I've been connected to internet since getting to Malawi, and as I had expected, it wasn't until swearing in! I just saw the Peace Corps Malawi office for the first time yesterday- my swearing in day. I am an official volunteer!
Training has been a whirlwind- 8 solid weeks, and it was an extremely wonderful experience. I am very grateful to the program staff here in Malawi. I feel extremely confident to move to my site and begin work. I visited my site about two weeks ago, and I am pretty sure it is the most beautiful place in the world. It's paradise! The name of my village is Mlowe, and I am excited to start work.
I'll update again (soon, hopefully) with more expanded reflections, but your support throughout training has meant the world to me and it has been great to hear from you. Please continue to keep in touch! I love you all!!
