Right now I am sitting at Gate 3 of the Corpus Christi International Airport headed to Denver, Colorado. I’m on my way to a training with my new job that is sponsored by the AmeriCorps program. Have any of you heard of it? It’s called AmeriCorps VISTA, and they strongly emphasize giving back to the community. I always said that after I graduated college I wanted to do something that makes a difference, and hopefully this job will allow me to do just that. I’m a little apprehensive because I have no idea what to expect from my time in Denver, and I am definitely going to miss my dogs during the week that I am gone, but I know this will be good for me. I haven’t been out of my comfort zone for a while, and it’s about time to change that up.
If anybody has served as a VISTA, please tell me your experience and what to expect!
