On my visits with Fabiola, especially now as adults, we reminisce about the past, and wonder how we were ever able to communicate, let alone created such a strong bond and friendship.I am excited to serve the needs of my global community, and eager to continue to bridge the gap of what we do as a global community and what we are capable of in the effort to build the world we all dream about.I can think of no better way to accomplish this than by being a part of the legacy of the Peace Corps.It is not enough to live passively- rather, I must be aware of social issues around me, and actively engage with my community.The importance of this was imparted to me from a young age.The most memorable of these was the friendship I made with a girl named Fabiola, a schoolmate who lived above my house.Somehow, despite our language and cultural barriers, we developed a strong bond that still exists today.I have worked with a variety of groups, including the homeless, people living with HIV/AIDS, immigrants, and people with disabilities.As I have grown, my sense of social awareness has evolved as well, along with my ability to move within and actively participate in larger and more diverse communities.As I contemplate my next step, I can think of no more rewarding undertaking than joining the Peace Corps and using my previous experience to help better serve the global population.Working with diverse cross-sections of the community has given me insight into the unique struggles of marginalized populations, and I believe that in joining the Peace Corps, I can continue to expand my understanding of the different types of communities around me.
