Interview with Aurora Fox, January 1, 1970

Project: Peace Corps: The Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Oral History Project

Interview Summary

Aurora Fox was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Dominica from 2013-2015. She served in the Community Economic Development sector. Aurora was an older volunteer inspired by her parents who were also older volunteers. As such she found training to be targeting the youngest volunteer who had less live experience. She was assigned to a school which was a former nunnery. She was given the opportunity to teach art when the former teacher left. She contracted dengue fever. Towards the end of her recovery she failed to close the window and a robber woke her while stealing her electronics. As a secondary project Aurora volunteered at a camp for the disabled community. She also responded to a casting call for White people where she met several artisans and joined them to make carnival costumes.
