Did you ever consider joining the Peace Corps or volunteer overseas? Did you ever wonder what it takes for a young person to do exactly that? Did you ever want to be an athlete (Marathon runner) but did not quite have the confidence? Can you imagine what it takes for a young women volunteer teacher to become the national marathon champion of an Africa country while training alone in the bush?
