Hey ya’ll! My name is Brooklynn and I am a Peace Corps Community Economic Development Volunteer in Peru. I graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a minor in Marketing. I’m a piano teaching, Pinterest junkie, photographer with a passion for volunteering.
I successfully finished 27 months of service in a small town in the Northern Andes of Peru and I could not find it in my heart to leave yet, so now I am moving to the big city of Lima to continue my service as a third year Peace Corps Volunteer Leader in the PC Peru office and as a Digital Marketing volunteer with Sinfonía por el Perú, a local NGO that gives instruments and music classes to almost 6,000 kids across the country!
Long term goal: Start a youth symphony in a developing country, and continue traveling and writing about my experiences abroad.
Short term goals: Eat all the yummy market food Lima has to offer, figure out how to navigate the combi situation, and continue my goal to become mas peruana que la papa, “more Peruvian than the potato”.
