My interest for different cultures started when I was enrolled in my first Spanish class in seventh grade. I was intrigued by not only the Spanish language, but also the culture and everyday lives of people from Latin backgrounds. I began to have aspirations of traveling the world one day; this soon became my life goal. Every couple of summers, when my family was able to, we would take a trip to Mexico. I enjoyed speaking with the Mexican people in their native Spanish language and learning about their culture; it made communication much easier. All these trips made me realize not only how much people from other cultures appreciate when foreigners take an interest in learning their culture and native language, but how much I enjoyed doing so. There are thousands of places to voyage to and cultures to learn about all around the world. When people travel the world and learn about other cultures, it brings various backgrounds together, as well as, enhances a deeper connection between cultures. There may not be peace throughout the world, but bringing different cultures together generates an unexplainable connection between two people of different backgrounds.
