The AFS Experience

  • Name: Peggy Keller
  • Destination: Cairo, Egypt
  • When: Year, 1982-83
  • Hometown: Kansas City, MO
  • Organization: AFS


The AFS experience gave me the confidence to go away to college and move away from my family for my first job. It hasn’t really had an “in your face” impact, but I’m sure that it has influenced how I’ve interacted with others. You can’t have an experience like a foreign exchange program provides without it having an impact on your worldview in some way. It might be in many small ways rather than a couple of large ways, but the impact is there.
