Bio

Having lived in three different continents for more than 16 months, I’m still trying to learn to become a better citizen of the planet while I’m in Africa.

In 7th grade I started a club for world peace in the community I was living at the time but it didn’t last long. Since then my family moved to another continent where I learned to live in a completely new culture.

While in the University of Georgia I traveled to Africa–since then I’ve been in love with Africa & its people. I also loved the time I spend in South America and Asia.

After I graduated from UGA (go Ga Bulldawgs!) I worked in Lower Elementary Montessori programs in Athens & Lawrenceville, Georgia & married the love of my life, who calls himself Fractal Brain.

I enjoy running, landscaping, learning about things I don’t know much about, and being around domestic & non-domesticated animals.

After my service in the Peace Corps, I hope to take the PCAT challenge and have a career in Pharmacy.

My dream is to bring people together to start Montessori schools around the world.

I believe all members of Homo sapiens have a potential in realizing that we’re first & foremost one species (even if we are beautifully diverse) and in working together to coexist with other earthlings.

    Hello,

    I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Benin, West Africa, 1995-1997, and am running a cross-cultural social “experiment” of sorts. We’ve set up think tanks in Ghana, Cuba, El Salvador, Mexico, Ethiopia, and Serbia, and I would love to talk to you about setting up this same exchange in Uganda. In short, the project links specific communities in the US with specific communities in the “developing” world through problem solving. Please email me if you are interested in talking about this further. As an RPCV, I assure you that it is appropriate and sensitive and just the sort of thing I would have been happy to do in my village. Thanks! Christopher Robbins

  2. It was WONDERFUL talking with you and “Fractal Brain” on New Years :-). I’m reading your blog a little after the fact, but hey better late than never. Much love your way! Peace~
