Catherine wants to immerse herself in cultures totally unlike her own in order to gain a broader understanding of the global community and her place in it. She is interested in seeing how other countries celebrate community through spirituality, food, family, and education, especially those with deep-rooted histories and traditions. She looks forward to taking in the natural beauty of other regions whether it be hiking in the Himalayas, boating down the Ganges River, relaxing on the beaches of Thailand, or strolling through a traditional Japanese Garden. She says “I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate completing what has become one of the world’s longest (eleven years, officially!) Bachelor’s Degrees!”
