Traveling is a hobby for me and my family. With my East Indian background, I took advantage of my bilingual skills to ease my way through India. I love seeing the world, since most of my time is spent at home, in a suburban setting were interesting events are uncommon. I enjoy going to other countries and learning about different cultures which are intertwined with the very land they stand on.
The brightly colored streets of gold, red, silver, pink and every other color imaginable were small and crowded. The hundred year old statues and forts stood high as if a battle had occurred only yesterday. The people demonstrated so much pride on the land they called home. However, conditions were not always the best for them. I took for granted a daily shower and three hot meals every day.
Aside form the pearly Taj Mahal and the great Himalayas, I saw that many people were living in poverty and disease. Being exposed to child beggars in front of corporate skyscrapers, the homeless and the dying led me to want to take action about their horrendous living conditions. It was frightful to think that many of these people would not be helped. Being exposed to such conditions showed me how many opportunities I have in the United States to make my life better, like an education and a healthy living environment to grow up in.
My traveling hobby eventually has now turned into a passion. I would like to pursue a career were I can travel the world to places like China, Japan, Russia, and Africa to help those who cannot otherwise get help. My interest in various cultured helped me expand my knowledge of people and their surroundings. I want to take advantage of all the opportunities I receive and strive to do my best so I can make a positive impact on people of all ethnicities.
