Mariah swears in

This feeling is eerily familiar. Marching down a grassy path to the beat of the marching band. Waving to a few hundred family and friends, nervously giggling among ourselves because all eyes are on us. I feel like I am graduating from college all over again. As I pass the stadium adorned in the American and Ghanaian national colors, it dawns on me - it’s not just passing the language and technical tests. It took me over a year and a half to get here.

I am officially a bona fide Peace Corps Volunteer. It is about time.
