As a student of philosophy and immigration policy, and as an adoptive mother to two young boys who have, in the past five years, left their home in Africa and joined the wave of migrants crossing national borders in search of a new home, I have always been drawn towards education and employment that examines the experience of humans in transition and draws from such experience a new outlook on life.
I write this message from Arequipa, Peru where I recently moved for a period of six months to work, study, travel, and heal from divorce.
Before moving, I completed my Masters Degree in Liberal Studies at Loyola University, Maryland. A majority of my courses centered on policy research and analysis in the fields of foreign policy and immigration policy reform. My primary work involved the organization of multiple technical and written tasks as well as work with an assistantship managing and organizing staff and undergraduate students interested in learning about and working to prevent homelessness in Baltimore, Maryland.
While traveling through Peru (and working as an English teacher), I met my husband, Daniel. Daniel was born in Caracas, Venezuela but is living, studying, and working in Peru while we wait for him to immigrate to the United States.
I am so excited to share our family's journey and hope that you will follow our story!
Life is full of surprises, disappointments, struggles, and new beginnings.
There is always something new to discover!
So in the words of Mark Twain, "throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails."
This life is an incredible adventure.
I hope you will join us as we . . .
