Finally Back Home

My return to the states has been difficult. A mixed flurry of emotions. Happiness, happy about my experiences I had and the relationships I created. Grieving, grief about the friends and places I had to leave behind when I boarded my final flight back to the US.
All in all, traveling abroad was the best thing that ever happened to me. I wouldn't trade my journey for anything. I cannot express how important it is to travel and gain new perspectives on your cultural and intellectual views, religion, family, food and drink, and personal values.
For part of my Benjamin Gilman Scholarship project I created an online series of mini-video blog posts about the differences between American and European cultures. I have included the link below to my first video.
Thanks to Kate and Claire and UMKC for making my trip possible.
