Some Peace Corps Quotes

Here's Azikiwe Chandler (Nicaragua, 1998-2000): "Potential employers are looking for problem solvers. They're looking for leaders. They're looking for people who can work within different cultures. These are all things that I've gained as a Peace Corps volunteer. This is what I consider real life graduate school."

Here's Gala Wagner, (Ghana, 1999 - 2002): "Becoming a Peace Corps volunteer is the beginning of one of life's greatest adventures, whether you are 23 or 63. I am certain there is nothing quite like the Peace Corps experience. Anyone can travel and see the world, but it takes an especially determined person to stop and live it, to live the lives of the people you are watching as a traveler. You won't want to go back to just traveling again."
