I grew up in rural upstate New York hiking in the Adirondack Mountains with my younger brother Mitch, helping my family make maple syrup, riding horses, raising beef calves, and playing with my fat black lab, Laser. I graduated from Cornell University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Communications and a Bachelor of Science in International Agriculture and Rural Development. I am now an agriculture extension agent with the U.S. Peace Corps in Senegal, serving from September 2013 to November 2015. Let me know in the comments section if you have any questions or remarks about the blog! Thanks for reading, and sharing Senegal with me, I can’t wait to hear from you.
