Personal Information

I was born and raised in Omaha Nebraska. I graduated in 2018. I love to travel lot. I have a passion for traveling. I have been to at least 15 other states and two different countries, with my older siblings. I am the youngest child out of four children. My family traveled a lot when I was little that is how I have grown into traveling. I have a six-month-old son, and one day when he gets older, I plan on traveling with him. I am looking forward to taking this class to see what else that I can learn about traveling.


 I have been to many schools growing up, so every year I went to a different school. K-6th grade is when I went to at least 5 different schools. Once I got to the 7th grade I went to Lewis and Clark for two years. Then for high school I stayed at Benson all four year until I graduated. I graduated from Benson High School in 2018. I started UNO in the fall of 2018 as a freshman. I am a full-time student at UNO. I plan on staying at UNO until I get all the degrees that I can get. UNO was my dream school and now I am here today. UNO was the best fit for me, and I knew that it would help me get to where I need to be.


My major right now is pre-med. Growing up I always wanted to help other people in need and do as much as I can to give back. I picked this major because when I was about six years old, I gotten sick ad a lot of people helped me get better. That was one major reason that I picked this major because I want to be able to give back and help people just like this doctor help me. Ive always seen myself as being a doctor so that is what I am doing. But I am keeping my options open on what else I can do outside of my major.

All my travels

Where to I began, I have been to some states. In counting ive been to at least 15 -20 states in my life time that I know of. I have been out of the country twice. Once when I was 15, I went to Canada with my older sibling for a getaway for the summer. I have also been to Italy when I was 17. Italy was something different and I would not mind going back at all. Right now, my family and I are in the middle of planning a trip to either the Spain or to Mexico. We are not to sure yet of where to go but I want to be able to go to a lot of different places so why not do both.

Why I'm taking this class

Even though I have traveled a lot I know that there is something else that I can learn about traveling. I know this class does not go with my major, but why not learn more than what I already know. With keeping my options open I want to be able to travel and get to know more about what I will be doing and with this class it will help me.  This class is different and I ready to learn new and exciting things about traveling and other things that I need to know.

Assigned videos

The assigned videos that I have watched are Long Way Down and Long way around. Ive watches these on YouTube on my spare time and also at work when I got the chance

I agree to post all assignments for this course on the web for the professor and other students to view.
