My passion is exploring because I enjoy exploring new places where I get to meet new people and learn or try new things. When I was 12, I discovered this passion through a program at the church I attend. We went to a small camp-site and while I was there I met new people of different ethnic backgrounds and parts of the United States. Not only did I learn what it was like to camp in the mountains, but I also got a taste of different cultures from the people I spent the time with there. Interacting and meeting new people made me realize why I love exploring so much; it helped me learn new things outside of my comfort zone. Now I’m curious to know what it’s like to explore on a different level, such as visiting another country like Vietnam.
Attending Experiment in International Living in Vietnam will help me pursue my passion because I would get to do what I love which is exploring, and meeting new people from outside of California that have different cultures and lifestyles than me- this would be a life changing experience.
Luisa is a good candidate for this program because she is willing to take risks, and her curiosity drives her to excel. She is willing to put in work and is very open-minded. An experience like this program offers will challenge her to think even more outside the box and to push herself to take on different perspectives.
This trip has been the most life changing trip ever. I had never though I would be able to experience the things that I did. From planting trees, to kayaking, trekking, staying with my homestay, and trying new foods. I will definitely never forget this trip. I never thought I would get to explore such and amazing country. I will forever have this trip in my heart. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported me on having this trip!
Just a few more days left until I will be able to attend by program in Vietnam. I will learn about Ecology and Conservation and I am beyond excited! I know this trip will be transforming for me as I have never visited another country and I am the first in my entire family from both my mom and dad's side to go to Vietnam. I thank Wishbone and The Experiment in International living for granting me this opportunity I know will be life changing.
