25 years old, thank you. An incredible year that started in the Chi, took me to Istanbul & Paris, and allowed me to set up shop with the Peace Corps in Moldova. Thank you for teaching me how to feel like a minority, to experience incredible lows get crushed by incredible highs, to develop a lovely Romanian accent, to give time not financial resources, to see another side of life, to commit to learning every day, to miss, to hurt, to laugh at myself, to share real home cooking with some killer locals, to watch others succeed in peace, and to GROW.
26, watch out!! I’m coming.
