What do I hope to get out of my Road Trip? I hope I gain real knowledge of getting a feel on choosing the right career for myself. When I see "real knowledge", I mean things I don't usually learn from the classroom, but instead from successful people who share some of my same passions and interests when it comes to careers. I hope to gain some confidence in learning how they got to where they are today in a way where I feel like I can do the same.
