Hi! I’m Daniel Ryave, a current Peace Corps Volunteer in Togo, West Africa. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I graduated from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

Aside from volunteering, my hobbies are running, singing, watching TV, and anything Pittsburgh-related. (especially sports. Go Bucs!) I love food, and I bring chips to parties. It’s kind of my thing.

Some things I’ve learned in Togo: I am a great dancer, it’s pretty easy to lose weight, and there’s nothing wrong with being a Scared Jewish Boy in West Africa. I’ve had so many amazing adventures that I’ve loved sharing with you!

The Peace Corps has been my dream for as long as I’ve volunteered. I am ecstatic to get to share my experiences with everyone. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
