Relationship: Child of im/migrant

Ever since I was a baby I would travel. When I traveled it was either to go visit family or vacation. The first time I traveled was to Ecuador to visit family, but I don’t remember much because I was still a baby.From what I can remember, the feeling I had being on a plane terrified me. When the plane was taking off it was like your going up a hill. I was sitting by the window and I could see everything. The plane got further and further from the ground and moved side to side slowly. I immediately closed my eyes and held on tight. My body felt like as if I was about to fall off. As I keep growing up and traveling on a plane the less afraid I was. Now I enjoy traveling. I love seeing how the building, cars, trees, and lakes get smaller and smaller to the point where you don’t even see the cars and just green from the trees, blue for the lakes, and the shapes of the top of the buildings. Maybe being on a plane for hours may not be fun but looking out the window to see the city and getting closer to the clouds is incredible.When I get older I want to travel around the world and met new places, people, and just explore. One of the goals I have is to help people around the world.
