I have to blog – and this is how I feel about it.

For those who do not know, In 10 days I embark on a journey filled with unknowns!  I head to exotic Casablanca, Morocco, on the North African Coast.  I applied and was accepted into IBM’s Corporate Services Corps (IBM CSC).  The CSC is a hybrid of professional development and service, deploys 500 young leaders a year on team assignments in more than 30 countries in the developing world. We engage in two months of training while working full-time, spend one month in the assigned country tackling a social issue, and then mentor the next group for two months. So far, IBMers have completed over 1,000 projects.

My project officially begins, in Casa, on March 2nd.

I am a private person by nature and this assignment requires me to BLOG!!!  Those that know me are aware that I do not like putting photos or anything personal on social media.  My Facebook / Twitter statuses are limited to the play-by-play of a sporting event, promoting my passions (Lafontaine and Born Hungry), commenting on human rights issues or expressing how tired I am!  LOL.  None of these posts really go into detail about me.  I’m pretty much faceless (aside from the few photos I have on Instagram) and I like it that way!

So now I have to blog.  This is very difficult for me but in the spirit of IBM and the Corporate Services Corps, I am putting myself out there!!

So welcome to my blog.  Feel free to follow along with me and my experiences.  Would love to hear from you too.
