As a child, my parents gave me many opportunities to visit new parts of the country and the globe. I moved five times before the first grade, to places including Indiana and Texas. In addition to this, when I was about three years old, I lived in Newcastle, Australia for three months when I was three years old because of my dad’s job. I am very lucky to have had these experiences and many, many more.
Seeing, experiencing, and learning about new and different cultures excites me. When traveling, you meet all sorts of people, from different backgrounds and beliefs. I currently attend a high school with a large international student body which has allowed me to meet new people even when I don’t have the money or time to travel.
