Hey there! My naProcessed with VSCOcam with c1 presetme is Melissa and I’m a Peace Corps Volunteer, working in the area of Community Health. I grew up in a teeny town in Northern California and ended up in Southern Rwanda in June of 2014. I started this blog to keep track of my every day goings-on, to share Rwandan culture, and to let my family and friends in on what I actually do here in The Land of A Thousand Hills.
