Corps Conversations Ep. 1: John Wilson | Ghana

I had a great time talking with John Wilson about his Peace Corps service, and hearing about what it was like for him coming back.  One of the main sentiments I took away from the interview was how our Peace Corps experiences really help us appreciate the importance of making human connections, and to remember to be present in the moment.  In our world of text messages, instant messaging and Facebook, it’s so easy to lose sight of that.  Thanks, John, for reminding us!
