What are you curious about and what do you hope to explore as a Scholar?

I’m eager to meet people that come from different walks of life than me. I’m eager to see the world through the eyes of other people and try to walk in their shoes. I know that, although my peers may have completely different backgrounds and upbringings compared to me, we all share at least one quality: our curiosity. We all have that something that interests us in ways that we could talk about for hours, and I can’t wait to be part of that community. I am curious about how the world around us forms who we are as people, and learning more about people who are different from me is vital to my understanding. I want to explore the systems around us that influence our everyday choices, how those systems came to be, and how we may be able to impact them.
