My Travel Story

Hello everyone!

I am a Portuguese PhD student in Chemistry. I am finishing my PhD and I am thinking about what should I do next in my life. I have a passion for USA history and politics. I read books and articles about it everytime. I am realizing that this is my true passion. Therefore I would love to go to Washington DC to visit all the important historic sites and to feel the atmosphere of the most historic and political city in US. I have never been in the United States since it is very expensive for a student like me to go there. This would be a trip both for research and for personal development. This trip would mean the world to me in this important phase of my life when I need to make life-changing decisions. What I love in politics is the ability to have a positive impact in other people´s lives. And that is reflected in the "American Dream". I truly believe that the USA is the land of all oportunities.

Thanks for reading!
