Seeing the world outside the textbook

The Leaning Tower of Pisa

Being from three different cultures has influenced my desire to see the world. Starting from a young age, I have enjoyed traveling and being able to see historical monuments I have learned about in class. I have been extremely fortunate to visit many places inside and outside of the U.S. Visiting other countries and interacting with the people is one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in life. My most memorable experiences are from interacting with people of different cultures.

I do not have a "favorite" place in the world because every city has its own uniqueness, but my favorite part of traveling is being able to explore and discover the uniqueness of every place I visit. Next summer I will be going abroad with UF's College of Journalism and Communications to Spain. May 2012 cannot come any quicker.
