About

My name is Scott William King and I grew up in Richmond Heights, on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio. I attended St. Ignatius High School (’13), where I was first exposed to service-learning programs in the Greater Cleveland community. In the past couple of years, I gained experience working with the inner-city youth of Cleveland through my internship at the Cleveland Foundation and Cleveland Housing Network, as well as coaching a Force Blue Sox baseball team from the 9u level to the 11u level in consecutive summers. Additionally, I expanded my volunteer experience by serving internationally through International Volunteer Head Quarters (IVHQ). My experience with IVHQ took me to Quito, Ecuador and Cape Town, South Africa, respectively. My time in each country has inspired me to continue to see and experience the world through the lens of an international volunteer. After graduating from Capital University (’17) in Columbus, Ohio with a degree in Professional Writing and a minor in Marketing, I have joined the Peace Corps to teach primary literacy in the Eastern Caribbean. This blog exists as a means for me to share the stories of my Peace Corps experience and living abroad. All content and material shared on this page is exclusively mine and does not represent the views or opinions of the Peace Corps or US Government. Thanks for following and enjoy!
