Overcoming My Phobias Though Travel

As a Chinese student from main land China, I chose to study in the capital city from home for college in 2013. In Beijing, I started to take my first job and by doing that I could travel on my own expenditure. In 2013 and 2014, I’ve traveled to most cities in China and I have the most unforgettable experience in Indonesia where I overcame my phobia over snakes. Also in 2014 I went to Hong Kong to study and did a lot of travel along it. In 2015, I’ve got a full scholarship to study in the states, which not only gives me a better chance to study abroad but also allows me to travel more. In U.S., I also overcame the other phobia, which is deep-water fear by wakeboarding successfully for the first time. Even if I have overcome the only two phobias in my life, I will never stop my journey and I’d like to inspire others to do the same thing!
