A Call to Service

President Obama is for our generation of Americans what President Kennedy represented to his generation back in the 60s. Although, when I joined the Peace Corps I wasn't inspired so much by the words of our former head of state, I was more inspired by my own intrinsic curiosity and roots to understand better the world we live in. So I decided that the best part of the world I could serve in , would be in our own hemisphere: Latin America.

After Peace Corps, I went onto grad school in Pittsburgh, there I continued my commitment to public service but at the domestic level as a member of a local Americorps program; while cruising through my first year, I served at a Pittsburgh inner city school as a teacher assistant aiding in Spanish and Technology subjects. The students, teachers, and staff were wonderful. The experience made my stay in Pittsburgh much more pleasant and rewarding during those two rigourous academic years.

Luckily, I also happen to know a Latina friend in DC who happened to be involved, hands on, crafting this legislation on the House side. She's an amazing public servant and I give her props for her amazing work in this line of work.
