My name is Lizette, and I was a TEFL PCV in Sri Lanka from 1986 – 1989. First of all, believe me when I say that not a day goes by that I do not think about Sri Lanka. Although I was a PCV there more than 30 years ago, Sri Lanka is still in my heart and mind. Always and permanently. That’s what being a Peace Corps Volunteer does to you—it changes you forever in a way that you would never expect.
I am so excited to know that Peace Corps will again be in Sri Lanka! I have been told, that when I was 4 years old, I would tell everyone who I saw, I was going to be a Peace Corps Volunteer. And I did!
