I sent in my application for a Peace Corps passport last week! I also just sent in (via email) my aspiration statement and resume to the Namibia country desk.
An aspiration statement answers the following questions:
- What are my expectations of my Peace Corps service and the program I have been assigned to?
- What are my strategies for adapting to a new culture?
- How do I expect my service to further my personal and professional goals?
I thought about posting my aspiration statement in this blog, and then decided against it -- it seems a little too personal to just generally post.
I would be happy to send a copy of it to anyone that is interested in reading it, just email me at:
