By the time I joined the ranks of the United States Peace Corps in 2010, I was fifty-three years old and I needed a change. Not a small minor adjustment like a new hairstyle, or maybe learning a new hobby. What my life required at that point was an 'Extreme Makeover Lifestyle' kind of change. I was seeking an opportunity to change my daily existence, to stretch my mind to new levels, top open my heart to new people. I sought to widen the scope of my spirituality and to increase my understanding of myself. I craved thrilling and stimulating situations that would test my limits and expand my boundaries. I had requested to work in the agricultural sector in sub-Saharan Africa. I ended up in Mongolia working in community youth development. My adventurer's spirit told me the universe knows where I should be and what I should be doing. The twenty six months living in Mongolia were some of the most challenging, exasperating and meaningful in my life.
