Since I was young, I have always been a traveler. I’ve been all over the US and even set foot into other countries. There is so much to see and so much to learn when you are exposed to new things, new people, and new places. Earning a living by travelling the world would be a dream-come-true, but it would also be an opportunity for me to make a difference. It’s hard to get to know and understand one another when there is 57,510,000 square miles of land spread over planet earth. By travelling the world and learning about other cultures, I would gain a new understanding of life and allow others to learn a little bit about my culture, as well. What we need as a world is to come together and just take a moment to learn about each other. We are too quick to draw our guns and settle disputes with bloodshed. It’s unrealistic to believe that I, myself, could change the world and how we see one another single-handedly, but for each person who is willing to travel and recognize what other humans have to say, it could make a world of a difference, literally. I would encourage others from different countries to come with me and eventually start a corporation of people who would travel the world and experience life beyond what we know, and try our best to understand a point of view other than our own.
