“Life in Paraguay is much simpler than life in the States,” says Abby Cohen, 24, of Bethesda, Maryland, a Peace Corps Volunteer who is currently serving in Paraguay. “It wasn’t hard to get used to living in a small town where everyone knows my name, greets me with a smile and says hello on the streets, and where neighbors are always offering me fruits off the trees in their backyards. People may forget the details of the projects I have completed here, but I hope that my willingness to lend a hand, my eagerness to participate wholeheartedly in the community, and the easy conversations I have had with community members will be the mark that I leave behind when I head back to the States next year,” she says.
