I went abroad at the age of 20, and since then I've spent 5 of the past 8 years living in 5 countries and traveling many more around the world. 

Traveling while young and before you've "found yourself" means that after a while, the experience of having traveled becomes a part of you. For me, this becomes all the more true because the places I traveled too were very far from home, and caused a drastic change in the way I saw the world. 

My time living in Asia spurred a phase of self-development and—I'd even go so far as to say— a spiritual awakening, which caused me to develop what I call a cohesive worldview: everything started to come into focus. The world was no longer a complex place. Everything fix together like the pieces of a puzzle. It's a journey I am still on, but having come this far, I have pinpointed certain specific lessons that have come out of my journey, and through a process of deep reflection over more than a year and a half, have managed to understand them to the point where I feel ready to share them with others. As such, my journey which may seem like one of exploring the world, is really a journey of the self, and internal journey for which traveling the world was only a catalyst. I hope that by sharing this internal journey with others, I can stimulate a similar form of internal "awakening"  in others and allow people to see the world more clearly, and in turn better understand their own role in the world and in society.

With my unique experiences, living in different parts of China, Asia, and the World, in the context of the major shifts going on in the world today, I believe my lessons will be important in allowing people to adapt to a changing world and not get left behind. With China being a rising economy in the world and at the same time being a highly misunderstood place, I believe I can make use of my experiences to help dispel some of the myths, and disarm some of the hate that is often directed towards this country and its population which makes up 20% of humanity. The idea that we are all human and what's good for one country should be considered good for all of us is lost on many of us these days, especially in the United States.  

By developing a global mindset we can start to generate awareness, tolerance, and understanding of the rest of the world, and in doing so put ourselves in the best possible position to make the most of these changes going on in the world, for the well being of ourselves, our families, and our communities.
