Vote For Me and Send Me to D.C.

¡Ya está la hora para votar! As I said a couple posts ago, my blog was chosen at the end of July to compete as a finalist in Peace Corps annual Blog It Home Contest which highlights volunteers that use their blogs to share the culture of their host country with people back home in the States. The winners will be sent to D.C. at the end of October to participate in a week of intercultural presentations, professional development events, and other activities around the city.

Voting is easy! All you have to do is “like” my picture posted on Peace Corps’ official Facebook page. After you’ve “liked” it, make sure to share the link and encourage your network of Facebook friends to “like” and share as well!

Voting lasts from August 11th-August 15th and winners will be announced on August 17th. Those of ya’ll that know me know that one of my favorite things about my Peace Corps service is writing this blog and that I put a lot of thought and effort into it. So if you’ve ever learned something new about my new home Peru by reading Siyah En Peru, be sure to vote me all the way back to the States!
