    As a child, I dreamed of traveling to far off places. Now, I no longer dream about traveling, I have stood at the Great Wall of China, held a conversation with Tibetan Monks, climbed some of the mountain trails in the Himalayas and visited the Taj Mahal. My travels outside of the United States are even more valuable to me than my college degree. They have given me an appreciation of world cultures and an acceptance of differences.
