The home stretch!
It’s been a few weeks since my last update — so I thought I would share the good news so far!
I have gone through the two rounds of interviews at Kiva – one with a former Fellow, and another with a Kiva employee. I am now anxiously waiting for a decision. Kiva is currently contacting my references, and I should find out in a couple of weeks whether or not I am recommended to be a Fellow. A couple of weeks later, I would then find out the location assignment.
So, I sit tight and wait..and fanticize of what being a Kiva Fellow can bring.
On other news, I took the big step and gave my resignation at work! It was a huge step for me, being tremendously risk averse and all. My four-year career as a consultant have come to an end, for now. While I wait to hear back from Kiva, I have decided to take an internship at a microfinance network here in New York. I am terrified, but also so excited to learn about microfinance as much as possible, absorb every bit as a sponge! While I am at it, I will study for the GRE and see how that goes.
Well, the wheels are in motion .. the scape has taken place, and the adventure is just getting started!
