To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

Walter Mitty

As someone who has never been outside of the US, I believe that I need to acquire experience abroad prior to my Spring 2023 semester abroad in Santiago, Chile. I chose Buenos Aires, Argentina because it is not only a naturally beautiful country, but also the intriguing national history and culture excites me to gain speaking proficiency in Spanish. I have wanted to place myself in an immersive environment where I would be forced to speak Spanish constantly. An experience like this would allow me to gain the confidence and proficiency I will need to become the global citizen I know I can be.
