My Travel Story

by: Jacob Peel Start Date: May 3, 2017 - End Date: Aug 12, 2017
On June 14th, I will be traveling to Hong Kong to study Information Systems at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology - School of Business and Management, the #1 university in Asia. As a Management Information Systems major, this trip is important because many modern breakthroughs and developments within my field occur in major business-hubs in Asia, especially Hong Kong. In addition, this trip will be particularly special to me, personally, because I have never traveled outside of the country, and am excited to test my limits by exposing myself to a city and culture so foreign to my own.

I have been saving throughout the past semester working two jobs to support myself in Austin, as well as save up funds for this trip. This opportunity is one that you only get once in your lifetime, and I will not let my inability to fund it keep me from embarking upon an unforgetable summer.
