During my senior year of high school, I was diagnosed with a critical illness and spent a while fighting for my life in the hospital. Recovery was difficult and painful, and even after I went into remission, I knew I just didn’t feel ready to dive into college… so I took a leap of faith and spent the next year working and traveling around New Zealand! Everything about the country was beautiful, and for the first time in a long time I felt alive again. I was able to heal and reflect on what I had been through, and even met my significant other there! Honestly, I still think that trip was the best decision I have ever made for myself.
