Someone once said, “Some birds are meant to be caged.” This statement does not apply to me at all. I love to travel, see the world, and to learn about other cultures. Traveling allows me to stop thinking about myself and to help and understand others.
How would this change the world? Easily, by traveling it will help other people to see what is out there and what is still to be learned. By me sharing my experiences with others it will allow them to be more open and helpful with others. I once had a teacher who traveled all around the world. One year I, as well as a few other students, where able to travel to Europe. That experience has changed me in so many ways than one. This is what I hope to do to others.
Traveling has become common in numerous businesses, which is very helpful in my case. I would become a human services or a social worker. I would get my degree from Indiana University Northwest or Purdue. From there I would travel to hospitals all around the world.
Of course this decision would be hard. By not seeing my family and friends, and it can be stressful at times being in a whole new setting. But someone once said, “Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and, above all, don’t let anyone limit your dreams.”
