Living in Nicaragua

by H. Lynn Beck






H. Lynn Beck graduated with a degree in agriculture from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln in May 1971; yet, he was dissatisfied, unhappy, and without goals. He always thought college graduates should know what to do with their life. The two years he spent with the Peace Corps in El Salvador (1967-1969) had profoundly changed him and he knew he wanted to continue helping others. It would only be a matter of time before he found himself back in Latin America, living in Managua, Nicaragua.
