I didn’t expect to end up in AmeriCorps. It was actually the last thing I expected. When I finished my master’s degree in children’s literature at the University of Cambridge in the middle of 2020, I anticipated entering the children’s book publishing field, as had been my plan. As we all know too well, 2020 as a year had no respect for anyone’s plans, so I expanded my job search to include anything in the education, library, nonprofit, and book worlds.
