New Horizons, Personal Evolution

It is never easy to define who you are.  We grow and change all the time, especially when we are young and just beginning to get an idea of ourselves.  When I try to set out who I am, then, I look at what in life means the most to me and what has shaped me in the strongest ways.  That answer is not hard to identify.  If anything inspires me at my deepest levels, I believe it is the opportunity to see and explore as much of the world as I possibly can.  If I do not exactly find myself in these travels, I think I create who and what I am through them.
