Stories• Sipping Wine (Vietnam: December 1999)
• My Son (Vietnam: August 1999)
I didn't do much traveling growing up.
And as much as I loved my hometown of Holland, Michigan, I could not wait
to get out and see the world. So I did. I moved to Pittsburgh
for college, went on Semester at Sea, which took me
to South America, Africa and Asia, and attended Vietnam National University
in Ho Chi Minh City for a semester after that.
When I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, I took with me a
degree in Art History and a passion to work in international development.
So, I moved to Washington, DC, to work for two international health organizations. Now, I'm studying full-time to become a nurse.
