Hello Everyone! It's been too long since I've posted to this group... The last 6 months have been a whirlwind and I've settled nicely in Dunedin, New Zealand. I'm now the Communicator Coordinator for the Otago Museum, where every week is like our orientation week, maybe with less singing, but we can work on that. :) hoping all is well with you and that I get to see some photos and updates from alumni and peer mentors soon!

Alumni and others! If you are 18-34, apply TODAY for this leadership opportunity with the National Parks Conservation Association. Application looks easy!

Must be able to serve for two years and travel (expenses paid).

There will be accepting additional candidates later in the year, so keep them in mind.
