Rwanda Photo Essay
Genevieve is a professional photographer, marketer & Peace Corps volunteer.
"From January 2011 to November 2012, I taught English at the middle school in Kabere and participated in a variety of development projects with other Peace Corps Volunteers throughout Rwanda while doing my best documenting it all. What I ended up with is a just a glimpse of how two culturally different peoples, from America and Rwanda, interact when they are together and when they are apart living as neighbors in one beautiful, enigmatic country..."
I feel fortunate to have been asked by Genevieve to help her with this idea & for her to trust me with her images and actual memories (a few bags full of postcards, student work and clippings) was really quite awesome of her. This book is a reflection of her experience in Kabere, Rwanda. We worked together to integrate her photography into a written story, which not only explained the different way of life in which she learned from daily but the struggles & rewards of being a Peace Corps volunteer. I feel so lucky to have helped her make this idea come to life.
