If I could earn a living by doing what I love the absolute most, I would travel. I have always loved experiencing cultures to which I am not accustomed. Traveling and sharing my experiences could change the world by helping to establish a more united global community and opening others’ eyes to the beauty that lies beyond their own individual worlds. As of now, my goals are to graduate from Baylor University with a BA in International Studies and find a job involving both travel and advocacy of expanding the knowledge of the world and all its wonders. I want to start by teaching English as a Second Language in a foreign country for at least a year after graduating. In my travel experiences I have found that many communities across the world are desperate for English teachers. I want to do that myself, and then eventually have a different job involving more than that, part of which would be encouraging others to do the same.
