“I suppose wanting to travel is something everyone always wants to do, but I feel like I suffer from wanderlust (yes, that is a word) much more than the normal person. I don’t really know where my fascination with traveling came from. When I was in elementary school, I had dreamed of going to Egypt to see the pyramids. In middle school I wanted to scuba in the Great Barrier Reef, walk the Great Wall, and take a stroll through a traditional Japanese garden. In high school I wanted to take the 3-day hike to see Machu Picchu. Now, I want to party in Times Square and be caressed in the City of Lights.

It’s a never-ending desire that I have; I will continue to desire these many destinations until I have had the opportunity to experience them all.”
