Traveling the world has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. This trip would be a start to that dream.
How will I make a difference in the community?
I'd have experience with traveling individually so I could mentor others who are interested in traveling or studying abroad. I go to the University of Tennessee and would like to study abroad my junior year so It'd be a great starting experience and I could help out other students.
Why are you passionate about this project?
When I was 13 my grandmother took me to London for my birthday and I instantly fell in love and have wanted to go back ever since. The United Kingdom has by far been the most mesmerizing place to me, I loved it. So far it is the only European country I have been to. I also have friends in the UK and it would be great to get a chance to see them. I also have family in Germany so it would be nice to get to see them for once as well.
Why did you choose this destination?
I knew I wanted to go to the United Kingdom but I also wanted to broaden my horizons and see something that I haven't seen- jump into a whole other culture. So I went with France and Italy.
What makes this meaningful for you?
It is a chance to see people I adore who I haven't seen in ages, and it is a chance to open my mind to new things, start accomplishing my dreams, and a true learning experience.
