Alice Williams can tell you exactly where she's going after graduation, but odds are you still won't know. Finding Timor-Leste on a map presents a challenge, but not nearly as much of one as the people living in the southeastern Asian island nation face in the form of extreme poverty. Being a 24-hour flight away from home for two years as part of her Peace Corps assignment is something her "family is still getting on board with," but Williams will be exactly where she's wanted to be since a Study Away trip to India." I loved it, and I think that's what really solidified that I wanted something in Asia after graduation. It made me feel that I'm more capable of this," she says.
