What does it mean to be a world citizen? For me it is sitting at a table full of people from all of the world and engaging in a conversation that challenges my thinking. What I am trying to say is that perhaps being a world citizen can not be defined as one thing perhaps it is much bigger than that. My take on it is that a world citizen is someone that understands and appreciates other cultures. It is also someone that has made it her life goal to be continuously learning about the world and its people. It is that mindset that helps us to go and explore. Life is not meant to be lived in one corner of the world.
I left home a year a go after graduation and moved to a different country. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Living in a different country taught me so much about myself-my ignorance really. I am proud to say, I’ve gained the ability to work independently, interact with other people who hold different interests, perspectives. Now, I see life in a different light. Traveling has a way of giving us the chance to reinvent ourselves. Join me in being a world citizen @castleinterprogram.com
