Introducing Myself!

Hi there!

My name is Anna, I am 20 years old and I will be coming to work in Senegal from August 2019- June 2020! I will be working as a HOPE Center facilitator. A few things about me... I come from a small town on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. I love art, traveling, reading. I'm excited to get to know Dakar and make some new friends!

    @annalouise do you live anywhere near Seattle? My daughter is at SPU (who loves art) and served on the AFM in Benin in 2017. Perhaps you might like to meet her for coffee before the beginning of June? If you private message me, I can connect you two. So excited for you! You will love the Hope Center and you will be a fellow crew member with another daughter of mine, Beth, who is now/will be a teacher in the AFM Academy. She loves to travel and read too.

    Hi, Anna! I am so excited to meet you, and I know you must be really looking forward to your trip in August. My husband and I will be serving for the first time in December, so we will look forward to seeing you then! I am going to be working as an Outpatient Nurse, so I am sure I will see you from time to time! All the very best to you as you prepare for this great opportunity.

    I will be joining the Africa Mercy July 2019 through August 2020; you and I will likely be in the same Onboarding class in Texas. I look forward to meeting you and working with you. And by the way, my

    job will be with the communications team as a writer!

    With grace,
