Jessica Kim, a biology major with minors in chemistry and theatre, has been accepted into the Peace Corps and will be posted to Cameroon upon graduation next May .

The Peace Corps is a global organization that has been involved in international development and citizen diplomacy for over 50 years. Its mission is to promote world peace and friendship, and it is involved in more than 139 countries.

Jessica decided to join the Peace Corps because she wanted to gain this amazing experience before applying to medical school. She is most excited about the opportunity to immerse herself in another culture and help others through medically related work. Jessica, being a theatre minor, was also recently featured in an episode of the popular show “House of Cards.”

Congratulations on your achievements, Jessica!
