Tomorrow my cousin is going to Africa , where he will spend the next two years working with the Peace Corps. I want to wish Brian the absolute best and I don’t know if I already told him but I want him to know how proud I am. This is a very good and brave thing he is doing. He will be teaching but I know his students won’t be the only ones learning, I’m sure this will be a great experience for him and he will be a great teacher.

I won’t be able to talk to him until 2018, and by then I’m sure we both will have changed a lot, but I want him to know how much I, and the rest of our family will miss him and will be thinking about him. We will all be urgently waiting to see pictures of this adventure he is just beginning.

I am speaking for the whole family right now, we love you Brian, if we get the chance to go to Africa, we’ll visit you, if not we will be waiting right here.

  1. I agree with you Kiki. Brian is very brave and so generous to dedicate two years of his life to help and teach the less fortunate. I couldn’t do that myself. I’m sure he will also be giving up all kind of comforts that we all take for granted every day. And yes, he will learn a lot too. My Mom always said that “it is better to give than to receive”, and as usual, my Mami was right.

    We are all very proud of Brian and wish him the best in his new adventure.
