I think it's my ability to be courageous not only towards others but myself. I like to cheer my friends on to recognize their potential and empathize with them no matter how much I try to tell myself to be selfish because I've been taken advantage of. I used to focus on how others would perceive me but through my backpacking travels, but I soon realized it's a matter of how I foster my mindset. I always tell myself "you're not going to die if you do XYZ"
Frankly, when I receive the reward I want to travel Greece and Spain with my mom. Two countries that my mother always wished she was able to go. Though I'm a student, I've been trying to show similar experience through VR (virtual reality goggle) but as we both know, it's not the same as experiencing the culture and feeling the ambience. I haven't had a chance to live with her for most of my life (11 years) so I'd love to make up for the lost decade we were supposed to be together.
