Vote for Emily: 0

The thing I love doing most in the world in traveling. After spending a semester abroad in Barcelona, I fell in love with the city and the freedom of traveling. If I could make a living traveling, I would do it without a single hesitation. The other thing I love most is volunteer work. By combining my two loves, traveling and service, I would change the world and make a living at the same time. I would travel to areas such as Eastern Europe and South America to perform service work and practice my Spanish as an added bonus. This way I would be able to enjoy the freedom, adventure, and excitement of travel and help people around the world. I would focus on volunteer work concerning women, families, and education. To make this dream a reality, my goal is to graduate from college and look into options such as the Peace Corps for post-graduation plans. Barcelona is the city that stole my heart and sparked my love of travel. My goal is to be able to return there again someday and also give back to the city that helped me find my passion.
