Description

At some point during our lives we all asked ourselves – who am I? To answer this question and connect with our personal identities, we often express our inner being through: travel, art, writing, exercise, friendships, and many other ways. This paper will address the two mediums of travel and the environment and their subsequent roles in shaping: who we are, and who we want to be as individuals. Spending an extended time traveling or in nature, oftentimes yields answers to this central question, but humans are constantly growing and learning. As we learn more about who we are – the more we are changing as well. It’s a constant cycle – who am I?
