My 30 Before 30

I am 21.5 years old.

In the 8.5 years I have until I reach 30, that third decade of life that seems so influential, I want to do things that not only build my character, but set me up for a future that is everything I want it to be. My ’30 Before 30′ list includes things I hope that happen in this timeline and things that I know I can control happening in the next 8.5 years.

I'm choosing to better myself, be educated as much as I can, not let there stop me, do what makes me happy, not settle for what's in front of me. Can you say the same?:

As someone with a passion for travel, socializing, and promoting kindness, here are 30 things I hope to accomplish by the time I’m 30.
