"In my life, there have been several moments that have influenced me in some way or another. Some experiences were most substantial than the others, and those were the ones that have shaped me into the person I am today.
One of the those defining moments was the time that I traveled for the first time without my family. I flew to California for a week with my best friend and every day we got to explore something new in unique places. From this adventure that I was able to experience with a person I’m so close with, I realized that I didn’t want to spend my life in one place. The short trip to California was the first push in my long journey of desiring to travel to different places and take advantage of new opportunities. From that moment on, I’ve always planned my future with time for adventuring included."
