Every Peace Corps Volunteer has his or her own reasons for joining the organization. The most common connection in reasons among them is “to make a difference“.
If you’ve read the 60-page Black American Peace Volunteer e-book I published a few months back then you would have certainly received a more candid insight as to what types of “differences” our brothers and sisters are making in the field.
One story that wasn’t published in the book was from a fellow volunteer cohort, Aziz Carew.
He was actually the first person interviewed for this series back in September 2014 when I had the original idea. Somewhere around March 2015 during our Grassroot soccer training I asked him if we could try a recorded interview intstead.
We recorded this in a very low budget Peace Corps fashion so I apologize now for the sound quality. And it is my very first podcast so be easy on us!
But what is more important is the message that you take away from his fascinating story!
Mahatma Gandhi once said “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”.
And this quote always reminds me of Aziz’s journey when I think about it.
You never know the struggles people have had to overcome in their lives to get to where they are today. I hope this interview strikes a chord with you and pushes you to live a life that includes service and giving back to those in need.
