I have been fortunate enough to put myself in a place where I can save enough money to travel outside of the country every year for the last 6 years or so. Most of my long term traveling has been in South America, and I have loved it. I studied abroad for a term in Argentina, and have been back to visit twice since. It is a dream of mine to eventually live there for a bit, but we'll see what the future holds for me. I love learning about other cultures and meeting people from other countries. For the last 2 years of my college career, I lived in a house of about 60 international students, and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Not only because the people were awesome and I got to learn a lot about the world, cultures, religions, and other languages I otherwise wouldn't have been exposed to, but also because it was a great opportunity for personal growth and leadership development. I have since been to Mexico, Denmark, and England to visit friends I lived with in college!
As for my free time: I am part of the IM volleyball and softball team (B league) at work, I climb every once in a while, and am the social committee lead for the young employee group at work. Needless to say I like to keep myself busy. I enjoy going out to clubs and dancing, but I also enjoy hanging at home, a restaurant, or bar chatting too. I am looking forward to meeting new people so I have things to do during the week!
*Note: I LOVE to dance and I do it frequently... but I suck at it. Not only in my opinion, this is common knowledge among my close friends.
