Travelling is my passion in life. I love exploring and going new places. This summer the landscape architecture program at Oklahoma State is travelling to Asia for a study abroad trip. We will be visiting Taiwan, China, and Japan. This trip will focus on graphic journaling, documenting the trip through sketching your surroundings. The trip is about immersing yourself in the Asian culture and learning as much as we can so we can take that back and use it in our designs and lives. I am incredibly excited to go on this trip and experience all these new things, but I need help coming up with a way to pay for it!
