Hence, regardless of how important what I have to show them might be, I stand to learn a lot more that I'll ever teach.
I hope this doesn't appear as "shameless self-promotion" - it was my essay answer in my original PC application. I've been accepted to Peru in September. As an older PCV (61) I try to always promote PC service to the many college kids I meet. I know at least a few of them have gone on to join PC and I'm so proud of them. They return as much better citizens of this country (we sure need those) and also as much better citizens of the planet.“Why do I want to join the Peace Corps?” I know I will hear this question many times, so I’ve thought about it a lot. After much self-searching, I have to admit that I’m doing it for myself. Certainly, I know that PC goes into under-developed areas and helps the people improve their lives. I know these people would probably not receive this help from any other source. I know I will help many people improve their situations, and that will give ME a good feeling. It makes me proud of myself and I love that. Numerous times throughout my life, I’ve helped build or repair houses, furniture, cars or boats for people who had no ability to pay me. I did it all for free and leaving money out of the exchange created a much more enjoyable experience. I’m sure, after two years in a village, there will be no streets re-named in my honor, no school buildings will bear my name. The enduring marks will be made on me. I will become again a new version of myself, just as my eight years in Germany created a new me twenty-something years ago.
