Studying abroad gave me the confidence and capability to to move abroad and pursue my passions. There is no greater way to pay it forward as a traveler than to help fund an opportunity for someone else to do the same: to travel outside of their continent and comfort zone and to experience life from a different perspective.

Since I have had the ‘privilege’ of living all my life in the Western hemisphere, Thailand represents something completely foreign to me and I am eagerly looking forward to throw myself into it.
