After three years I switched majors and schools. May 2008 I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Anthropolgy with an emphasis on Archaeology. Directly after graduation I went into the Peace Corps and taught agriculture and nutrition in the highlands of Guatemala for two years and three months.
