I've wanted to go to Europe since I was able to read. When I was little, I spent countless hours absorbed in books of all kinds; fantasy, non-fiction, and my favorites: travel guides. Something about immersing myself in another culture, even if just for a car ride, felt magical to me. Today, I'm a rising junior in high school and I've never even been 1,000 miles away from the tiny town I grew up in, and I'm just as passionate about travel as I was 13 years ago. After high school, I plan on becoming an architect, and it's my dream to be able to experience Europe's gorgeous architecture and rich history. Please help me spread my wings and get the best kind of education the world has to offer: immersion and exploration.
