Traveling has always meant so much to me ever since I was a little girl. I’ll never forget when I was 7 years old and I took a trip with my older sister who was 13, to California. Getting off the plane late at night in the middle of Los Angeles, never seeing anything outside of Boston, MA. I was in awe. Getting to be somewhere so beautiful was amazing to me. And I was only 7 years old. I thought to myself “oh the places I’ll go when I’m old enough to go on my own.” This sparked my passion for traveling. My education will be extremely impacted, because I feel as though being in a different state, across the country, with a different culture, will help me to really focus on what I am doing. Knowing that I am living the Dream by going to school in Honolulu, Hawai’i, is incredible. I have many ideas of how I will make a difference in the new community I will be in. I cannot wait to experience new culture, but I think it would be great for the community to also experience my culture. Community Service is one of my passions, and I hope to be able to volunteer while I am on this trip. I chose this destination because I wanted to stay in the United States, but go somewhere I have never gone. Hawai’i is the only state that has almost a totally different culture than the other states, and I think that is beautiful. Thank you for reading, and please help support me on my journey to living the dream I have dreamt since I was a young 7 year old girl.
