I am Sam; compassionate, driven and deathly afraid of bugs. I’m leaving my life in Boston, Massachusetts and headed to the Dominican Republic to become a Peace Corps volunteer. I graduated from Boston University in 2009 and serving in the Peace Corps has always been a dream of mine. I’ve worked at a small community bank for the past three years and am excited to start this new adventure as an economic development volunteer in the Peace Corps. This blog will document my achievements and failures, big moments and small strides. Hope you enjoy it and thanks for coming along for the ride!
