When accepting the Edumadic offer, all I wanted was to be out of corporate life. I had no real idea of where I was going or what was in store. The locations were some I knew very little about, and most likely never would have traveled to if it weren’t as part of this Program. I had worked remotely before, so time management wasn’t an issue. The reason for not traveling until now was the fear of being an “ignorant American”. I soon learned that it’s not so bad to be ignorant of the world if you’re devoted to fixing it.
I fell in love with the cultures I was exposed to and found close friendships in every place we visited. Being surrounded by like-minded people from all over gave me a larger taste of the world, more than I could ever taste at home.
I long for the crazy adventures, late night talks, and cuddles shared between my newly found family. I am incredibly grateful for the people I met, for they have validated many things in my existence and helped me develop a greater sense of myself.
