Hi, my name is Eleonore van Tulder, and I’m a graduate from American University, class of 2016. I’ve been fascinated by the Peace Corps since I was in middle school, but never thought I would work up the courage to apply. Fast forward a few years, and now I’m going to be a Education volunteer in Mozambique from August 2016 to December 2018. Eleonorezambique is going to be my best attempt to share the experiences through blog form.

As always, questions/comments/thoughts or I-miss-yous are greatly appreciated. Feel free to contact me through any of the manners listed below!

*Some volunteers swear that packages and letters won’t get stolen if there are religious signs on it, like crosses or pictures of the Virgin Mary. Others say to write “Irmã Eléonore van Tulder” so the post office thinks I’m a nun, and won’t want to steal from one.
