The countdown has begun to leave the known for the unknown. My life in the Midwest has treated me well. I am thankful for all the people, places, and opportunities that have found their way to my doorstep. I will find myself here again. But, I have opened a new door, to a new path. That path involves endless possibilities. The path involves a phenomenon that I truly believe in : micro credit. My life as a Social Worker has constantly challenged me to examine poverty and view the dignity and worth in every person. But, I have felt a missing link with my work here in the U.S.; instead of working for change, I was working within a system that resisted change. I am excited for this new path that will allow change not only with the women I encounter, but my own self.
