One of the most important values in my life is culture. Specifically, I wish to both study and understand cultures other than my own. To acheive this goal of learning about foreign cultures, I want to travel the world as much as possible. This begins with study abroad! This trip is only for spring break, so it is the perfect opportunity for me to both gain class credit and learn about a new culture through a short trip paired with an Irish history and literature class. Ireland is a beautiful place that I have always wanted to see, and this opporunity is a great way for me to do that. My goal is the see the world, and this trip is the first step toward acheiving that goal.
