I plan to go to Rwanda with the Peace Corps after graduation and my knowledge of African Studies will greatly benefit the contributions I am able to make to the communities I will be serving in. Having cultural competence and awareness in the area you are working in is extremely important, and I feel that the African Studies Program has greatly prepared me for that.
