My name is William Burriss, also known as Amine in my small Berber village. Prior to Peace Corps, I served as a Legislative Assistant for a good-hearted congressman from the great State of Georgia in the U.S. House of Representatives. There, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to deepen my understanding of foreign affairs and our country’s legislative process. But after three years in Washington, I was worried that the call to serve in the Peace Corps was beginning to fade away. Coming from a family steeped in military service on both sides, I had long hoped to do my part in serving the United States abroad, albeit by a different path. So, in 2016, I made the decision to take the plunge and join the Peace Corps in order to do my small part in waging peace in the world. I hope that you enjoy reading this blog about Morocco and my experiences here, and know that you are always invited to participate in the discussion.
