We all have that one thing we love doing whether it’s a hobby or a stress reliever. Meeting new people and getting to see new places is a dream for me, because you are not just stuck in one little story or schedule all the time. Traveling can be a game changer. Each part of the world is a different culture or a different custom. If I could make a living by traveling, it would be totally awesome. I already have plans for travel as soon as I graduate from college. I am going to Japan. People might think, why is this relevant? Well if I were to travel to Japan I could probably change their way of thinking of Americans. There is still many Japanese people who hate Americans because of WWII, however, maybe if they got to meet an American who makes an effort to learn their culture then they could change their prejudice towards us. I believe that this is a great way to change the world because a lot of racism could end by the communication of different ethnicities, religions, and political differences. I am definitely setting out to travel the world and provide people with the evidence that traveling can work to promote good human understanding by learning a little bit of each culture, and of each other.
