Readjusted to the States [Final Blog]
Like the title says, I’m back and readjusted to South Carolina. I’m happy to see my friends and family but I miss all the excitement of being out there. Thanks to Beyond Boundaries and the Benjamin Gilman scholarships I was able to successfully pursue my goals.
Just eight months ago I was surfing the Web trying to find a good Russian program and the means to pay for it. After a montage of applications, trips to the Study Abroad office, and sending all kinds of documents here and there, I took to the skies and saw another side of the world.
Do I want to travel more? Heck yeah! But I’m 22 years old, unemployed and done with school. Now, I’m keeping my options open. I’m looking at teaching abroad gigs, internships and even the military. I just want to live a life that will allow me to pursue all my interests (foreign affairs, journalism, fitness) at once. This trip to Russia was an epic one. I want to have many more just like it.
Thanks for reading my blogs. Hope you enjoyed it!
