Peace Corps

CANTON, OHIO (Canton Repository) - Sophia Brown, 23, is in Senegal in western Africa where she is doing pre-service training with the Peace Corps Service as a preventative-health educator volunteer.

The daughter of Cynthia Hopkins of Canton, Brown is a graduate of the Andrews School in Willoughby, and earned a bachelor’s degree in women’s studies with a minor in economics from The Ohio State University.

During her first three months of service, Brown will live with a host family in Senegal to become fully immersed in the country’s language and culture. After acquiring the language and cultural skills she’ll need, she will be sworn into service and be assigned to a community in Senegal where she will live and work for two years with the local people.

There are currently 332 Ohio residents serving in the Peace Corps and more than 6,728 Ohio residents who have served in the corps since 1961.
