For my break, I visited Washington, D.C. As well as Virginia Beach. On my family vacation, I got to experience life outside the "bubble" of Grosse Pointe which is mostly a Caucasian community. It's difficult being raised in this type of area(not diverse) because when I am finally exposed to the real world it almost comes as a shock to how diverse and how different our world really is. I am born to think that everyone should be just like me: Fairly wealthy and white.
While in D.C. I got to finally experience a whole array of diversity, after all, people go there from all over the world. I got to see people from all ethnic backgrounds and I even vacationed alongside deaf and blind people. What I got through my twenty time project from the vacation was that language brings the world together. English, ASL, Spanish, French, .... And many many more. It's what connects the world together and that's why I think I wanted to learn ASL so badly.
