After what seems a lifetime in the academic world I am thrilled to be able to join MCC next year for SALT! My placement at the Gioi Publishing House in Hanoi, Vietnam will give me a chance to flex my English editing skills while learning and serving in a country still dealing with the after effects of the American military's involvement. There is always more healing and learning to be done, and I'm excited for both my work placement at the Gioi -- where telling the stories of Vietnam to the world is the central mission -- and for getting to know the country up close through first-hand experience.

I'd be extremely grateful for your support. MCC's mission is a fantastic way to continue making the world a better place one tangible step at a time, and I couldn't be more excited to be a part of their work. Contact me at with any questions, I'd love to hear from you.

Thank you,
