Bringing Joy to Africa
PRINCETON — Daily rains, long bikes rides and learning about diseases not common to her homeland are part of life now for Joy Storm of Princeton, a Peace Corps volunteer.
A 2002 Princeton High School graduate, Storm is now living in the African country of Kenya, more than 8,000 miles from her hometown. Arriving in Kenya in June, Storm spent 10 weeks in intense language, technical and cross-culture training before being sworn into the Peace Corps as a volunteer during a ceremony at the American Embassy. Following the ceremony, Storm and 47 other Peace Corps volunteers were sent to their respective sites, which for Storm, was the community of Kemelewa.
In a recent e-mail to the Bureau County Republican, Storm described Kemelewa as a very small community in the middle of nowhere. She lives in a good-sized apartment, even though there were some initial issues like broken windows and locks. The apartment is across from the community’s primary health care facility and part of staff housing.
