Hola! Me llamo Hannah. I am currently a Junior and I have lived on MDI my whole life. I greatly enjoy swimming, being in the outdoors, spending time with little kids, and traveling. I found a quote that resembled why I travel in the Why We Travel packet. It states that “we travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves.” I felt this described exactly why I travel and why I am so drawn to it. I feel when I travel I am able to get a new prospective on whatever is going on in my life at the time. It gives me time to step back, focus on what is really important, and appreciate what I have. Traveling gives you the opportunity to see new places, often very different from places you are familiar with. Some places better off, and some in more poverty. No matter what the circumstance is, the people you meet are always so welcoming and grateful for what they have. This has helped me realize that I should also be grateful for what I am lucky enough to have, and not continue to want more. I feel that one of my strengths is that I try my best to support people. I always want people to do their best and I like seeing each person succeed.
