At first, it may look like another mural painted on a wall. But for students in an English Club in Ecuador, it means much more.Their creation is part of the Peace Corps World Map Project, led locally in part by volunteer Marissa Schaefer, daughter of Fredrick and Julie Schaefer, Hidden Valley Lake.
The mural is just part of an adventure that started for Schaefer a little over a year ago when she joined the Peace Corps.My Dearborn County ties are relatively new, as my parents moved to Hidden Valley Lake around six years ago, said Schaefer, 27, by email from Ecuador.Born in Cincinnati, Schaeffer graduated from Mil-ford High School, but lived with her parents in HVL while attending college.She earned a bachelors degree in Spanish and Inter-national Studies from Northern Kentucky University and a masters in education from Xavier University.After graduating from college, she decided to join the Peace Corps instead of heading straight into the workforce, said Schaefer.I wanted an adventure, I wanted to travel, and
m o r e than anything I wanted to do something bigger than me. I needed a different purpose, and I knew that I have my whole life to work and earn money, so why not do something different?, she said.She already had fallen in love with Latin America, during trips to Mexico and Costa Rico, she said.Ive always said that I did not want to be one of those people who said I wish I would have. I am single and have no kids so I didnt really have any-thing holding me back, said Schaefer.The lengthy application process began in February 2011. Her departure date, to assigned country Ecua-dor, was Jan. 18, 2012. She arrived in the capital of Quito Jan. 19. After three months training, she was sent to Machala in the province of El Oro, on the coast not far from the Peruvian border, she said.It is hot and tropical and I absolutely love it!, said Schaefer.
