At the age of 16, living in a third world country after having lived for 14 years in California has proved to be quite a journey on my overall perspective on the world and what it means to live. Or what it should mean, because I feel that there have been some distractions and fallacies in my life that, prior to me coming here, didn't seem wrong at all. Things like: not truly valuing my academic potential, overdoing video games, wasting my time on a one way relationship or being concerned with what people thought of me... these all contributed to what I now look at as a simple and unambitious life. The result of being relocated against my own will, to an island off the coast of Honduras, has thankfully been the best thing that's ever happened to me. As I now seek to study Economics + (Environmental Sciences) and learn about Philosophy, I have come to the realization that I love life and people so much more than I used to. I am now not only more confident, but I also am very social and enjoy random conversations with people I don't even know. Which is opposite to how I used to be on both counts.
