2018 International Student Travel Video Contest Entry
- Carly Norris
This experience provided me the opportunity to not only engage in diverse situations, but better get to know myself. The spontaneity, liberating, plunge-taking excitement of it all was so empowering. I did things that scared me, things I never thought I’d do, I overcame challenges, and became resilient. On top of it, all I made lifelong friends from all different countries. Ever since this trip I have had a strong desire to go... all over the world. I’m fascinated with the places I haven’t been and people I have yet to meet. I have an extreme longing to learn about other cultures. I am pursuing my master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am eager to travel to the Netherlands to complete an internship in the mental health field and finish out my second degree. I cannot think of a better way to educate myself on the different cultural perspectives than to simply… go.
