2755 Estero Blvd., Fort Myers Beach, FL
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to change your life dramatically? To try something terribly new and scary, but truly heartfelt - all on your own? To do more and learn more than you ever thought possible?
I did, and I am sharing the experiences of my amazing adventure in Macedonia as a United States Peace Corps Volunteer from[masked] at a program for the Fort Myers Beach Library.
Only 450 people over the age of 50 serve in the United States Peace Corps each year, I was lucky enough to be one of them. I was 53 years old when I decided to take the biggest risk of my life, and ended-up on an remarkable journey serving in a tiny, ancient, mountainous, wine-soaked country just north of Greece. It truly is my personal "Eat, Pray, Love" story.
Find out what it is like to pack two suitcases and leave behind everything else you love - family, friends, your home and your job to volunteer in a country where you must learn a new language, work in a new job and make new friends, while trying to understand and meld into a foreign culture.
Through photos and stories I share how this wonderful trek enriched my life and broaden my understanding of myself, others and the world around me.
You are never to old to become who you want to be!
Hope to see you there,
PS Please RSVP, but don't worry about updates! This library program is open to the general public, as well.
