Map of MoroccoWhen our storyteller Liz Paxton first talked to a Peace Corps recruiter, she asked to do business work somewhere warm, but she was offered a post teaching English in Russia–not the closest match! She soon tried again and took an assignment helping artisans in Morocco, where she would go on to spend five years.

Now she is thriving in the corporate world, so she also shares her thoughts on balancing adventure and stability.
