I will be serving as an AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Corps Team Leader starting August 22, 2013.
This opportunity will allow me to travel through different states in America which I may not have had the opportunity to explore otherwise.
I will be primarily serving in the North Central Region, on the Vinton Iowa campus as a Team Leader with 24 other highly qualified people. I have never been more excited to explore corn fields, become educated on a government system, or drive a 15 passenger van. This is exactly what I was looking for when I thought about change and making a difference.
Collectively, I believe there is no way to challenge other people when you have never felt an extreme challenge like this program. I want to leave this program with a strong drive to work in communities and a new perspective on what other people are going through.
