Caroline in Armenia

May 29, 2013

My friend Caroline gave up a life of general comfort and house parties in Washington, D.C., to join the Peace Corps–forfeiting her mid-twenties to  do good. I advised against this decision because her assignment came up Armenia. Learning Armenian isn’t an especially lucrative life skill, and what’s more, search engine research revealed that morning jogs in certain parts of Armenia were dangerous undertakings because of the wild dogs. Caroline paid her nay-saying friends little attention, 1 did a bunch of good, and I was way wrong. The following is an insight into what she’s doing abroad, and how you can help.


  1. My wife was enthusiastic, actually, and come to think of it most friends were all “you go girl.” So really, I was the lone Negative Nancy.
