Testimonial:
The most valuable thing I gained from this trip is learning that the world has so much to offer. It is common to grow up and return to your hometown and live your life out there. I have come to understand that the world is full of so many amazing opportunities and places to see. For me, traveling was the scariest part of the process, knowing I was doing it alone. Once you take the first step towards being independent, endless opportunities will flood in. I now know that I am able to travel alone and explore this big world and all of its riches and wonders.
