"Travel is one of the most exciting ways to attain knowledge. The thought of going to other countries has always been a goal, and to actually go there is even more exhilarating. Also being away from the homeland (Navajo Nation) let me know what I have achieved. It seems like an experience or journey is crucial to a person's well being. I found this true as I was adventurously meandering through a shady street in Siena, Italy and climbing a mountain on the island of Sifnos, Greece. When I was there, I was thinking about home in Tucson and Window Rock. This reflection is about me and is a significant factor in personal growth."
