My Travel Story

by: Nadira Riley Start Date: Jul 12, 2018 - End Date: Jul 11, 2019
I am a girl who chasing her dreams to travel the world one degree at a time. In High School fate created a friendship with me and a young man who would urge me to study Spanish in his Native country. As a girl who was raised by a single parent and did not have many opportunities revolving around education due to the lack of financial support I was terrified. But, it just seems to right that I go away and study in this country. I will be the first in my family to get a degree abroad, to take such a big risk. I honestly do not want to study abroad for any selfish gain. I know I will suffer many hardships along the way. But, hopefully other young people will see what I have gained even through all of my troubles and it will motivate them to do the same. Life tries to telll you what you can and cannot do, but it's not that simple. Chase your dreams, be vitruous. Fear is the only thing that can prevent you from attaining anything. You may have been in the same shoes as me at one time in your life. Worried how you were going to do it, but just knowing this was what you wanted to do. Help another ambitous student follow her dream.
