Our future depends on the connections and relationships that we share that are connected internationally. Our countries and communities do not move forward without developing interactions among nations. As young adults, we have the opportunity to access remarkable cultures and innovate them into our beliefs. To study abroad is to build the key to success and is an essential part of developing a habit of cooperation and immersing into a culture to connect through our shared challenges and forward together. By studying abroad and establishing relationships, ideas can cross miles, oceans and can help us create leaders who can overcome stereotypes. For me, traveling to Barcelona would be my first step in the opportunities that life has for me to build connections with different races and socioeconomic backgrounds. America is known to be a country constituted from communities epitomizing diversity. Diversity changes the face of our relationships, it enforces and makes our nation what it is today. By studying in Barcelona, I will be able to embody these principles of our nation and reflect that every moment in my program. This season will enable me to learn about the ideas, history, and culture of a beautiful country like Spain and apply them into my future. I kindly ask that you consider in helping me obtain these resources, any amount is valued.
