Let's face it.  As much as people ask me about the food, the people, the sites, the bathrooms... this journey to Malaysia will mostly affect my inner self.  The feeling I have had since I applied, found out I got accepted and have been preparing can only be described as bittersweet.  Of course I am scared!  I am traveling an 18 hour flight to a country I have never even thought of visiting until this opportunity arose.  I am so thankful for the people that I am traveling with because they are kind, selfless and happy.  This journey will be much different from anything I have ever done but as many people have said to me, the group of people I am going with will be there for me.  I am so excited to broaden my educational perspectives and my personal perspectives.  I really feel that this trip will open my mind to things I have never considered and will take me far away from my comfort zone, which is extremely important to every step of the way.  I do not feel that I could be as grateful and as anxious if I knew that I would be taken away from my safe zone and be assimilated into another culture's zone.
