“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” – T. Roosevelt

I created this blog to chronicle my experiences as a youth development volunteer in Peru.

In October of 2009, while working as a junior account executive at a Hispanic  communications agency,  I realized what I wanted most was to join the Peace Corps.  Almost two and a half years later, in March 2012, I received my invitation to serve in Peru.

Staging is set for June 7, 2012 so…here we go!
