Life is too short. It’s okay to be selfish and for some, this means taking time to travel when you’re young. It’s true there are many things to look forward to later on, like a successful career and family, but it’s important to grab life by the horns and have fun while you can. Along with having new experiences and opportunities, you’ll be introduced to new faces, cultures, food and events that you would have never been able to experience by staying home on your couch.

Possible Merger: Student Feedback 2
