Image result for traveling the world

I want to pursue a major and a career that allows me to travel the world and experience all the cultural diversity and history in the world. It would allow me to expand my knowledge and would make my career much more memorable and exciting. I believe working in a field that allows me to travel gives me the opportunity to make a difference in many more places.



Sports has had a big impact on my life, teaching me how to understand all types of people, make strong relationships, and be a strong leader. The lessons I have learned through playing sports will help be throughout everything I do in life. I will always be involved in sports because I know what type of impact it can have on people
