Since my first trip at the age of five, my much loved thing to do is travel. Whether that be nationally through the United States or internationally. Travelling is a privilege I have been more than lucky to experience throughout the first twenty years of my life. Being that I have this opportunity while many others do not, I would use it to lend a helping hand to as many people as I can reach.
Although travelling is great when a person wants to relax and get away from their everyday routine, it is also the perfect time to better yourself and change another person’s life. One of my future aspirations is to go to Tanzania and climb Mount Kilimanjaro for Malaria awareness. Climbing Kilimanjaro, I could raise money for mosquito netting to help prevent the spreading disease. Travelling will also allow me to reach countries to assist after natural disasters and help third world countries get clean water and necessary vaccinations.
My parents have been able to give me an amazing life, and I am grateful of the way I was raised. Being submersed in other cultures is one of the most eye opening experiences a person can have. If I was able to not only travel for a living but also able to use the endless opportunities I have been given in life to help others and to make their way of life even the tiniest bit better, nothing would satisfy me more.
