I enjoy learning about cultures and understanding different perspectives that come with the different experiences that people have gone through. I eventually want to be someone who connects people of these cultures that eventually bring them to the next phase/stage of their businesses or life that they are in. I'm still in the process of trying to find/achieve that. Being in the working world makes you feel like dreams can't be achieve but being an adult also means that it's also up to you to make it happen. Well, at least trying and being ok even if it doesn't work out.
One of my dreams is also to study full time abroad but calculating the costs always made me cross it out. Especially since it doesn't guarantee anything in the future.
If I could just have the funds for the course fees, I can do a part time job whilst studying. Maybe the dream can actually not just remain a dream.
