Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
As a college student at a major US university I have taken every opportunity that has been presented to me to travel abroad and to learn or work in that destination. Traveling and experiencing different cultures has become extremely important to me. Before I can even make it to my destination though I do my best to be an informed traveler; this means reading up on the history and customs of the place and even more importantly it's current financial, political, etc. situations. I hope that the Global Ethics Network will help to keep me informed, not just on the places I will be traveling to, but to the majority of the world.
