hello! (or) hola! welcome. (or) bienvenido. (or) meow.

erin leigh is a current peace corps volunteer serving in peru since june 2012. please enjoy the excitement and anxiety she experiences throughout her 27 month experience!

this texas native departed for peru from dallas, though in her heart of hearts, she knows that the emerald city is her home. she has a background in marketing & public relations but through years of volunteering with the boys and girls club of america, found her true passion to be working with at-risk youth. she is delighted and privileged to fulfill her childhood dream of volunteering for the peace corps youth development program in peru.

when she is not trying to make even a slight change in the world, she can be found taking pictures upon pictures, crafting stationary, adding to her ever-growing collection of vintage pyrex, and karaoke-ing until the sun rises. she has been practicing bikram yoga for two years and looks forward to expanding her yoga practice in peru.

you can read more about her personal adventures, travels and commentary here. you can find her on twitter here.

additionally, she would love to receive letters from you. after all, a letter always makes the heart grow fonder:

erin leigh would like to also note that the contents of this blog are hers, personally, and do not reflect any position of the united states government or the peace corps.
