Traveling can expand my wisdom and knowledge will allow me to gain insight into how others navigate different situations and solve a variety of interpersonal, societal, and systemic problems. Experiencing someone else’s form of communication and daily life will hopefully shift my outlook on life. While traveling, I can learn about how others survive, adapt, and thrive in various life situations.
The opportunity to expand what I can offer to my community is important to me as I already know I am in a position both at home and in my professional and educational experiences where others look to me for leadership and guidance.
