What Inspired You To Join The U.S. Digital Corps?

"What could be a bigger inspiration for a mother of two, a housewife, an immigrant, a student starting her master’s degree after 13 years out of school, or a someone returning to the workforce after 11 years——or someone like me who is all of the above? For me, the promise of returning to the workforce and setting an example that anybody can achieve their life goals by taking small, consistent steps has been my inspiration. The U.S. Digital Corps enables me to take a "learning by doing" approach while serving the public in the federal government."
