Hello friends, family, and those otherwise interested in reading. My name’s Dominique (I hope that you knew that) and this is the blog I’ve created to chronicle my next adventure. In two weeks time, I’ll be catching a flight to Miami for Peace Corps staging aka hours of paperwork and rule-learning. From there, my fellow Group 85-ers and I will take a short flight over to Kingston, Jamaica and touch down “pon de rock.” See what I did there?
For the next 27 months, I will train, learn, assimilate, and become a Youth Literacy Advisor as an Education volunteer in the United States Peace Corps.
Today marks the start of Peace Corps Week, which I find all too convenient a date to start this blog. I hope that you enjoy! Jamaica, here I come!
Check out this awesome footage of Bob Marley and the Wailers performing “Smile Jamaica” in front of 80,000 people at the free Smile Jamaica Concert in 1976.
