Farewell! My time here at National Geographic has come to an end. I have enjoyed writing about the world, events, places and people for My Wonderful World readers. There has been so much that has happened in the last few months, from earthquakes to volcanoes, and even the Cherry Blossom Festival.

My next step is to head back to Colorado to finish my Secondary Education/Geography degree. This is very dear to my heart because I believe so highly in the benefits of education and the role of Geographers in conveying an understanding of the world to learners.

These last few months have revealed a world of learning opportunities and served as a reminder that you can never dream too big. I hope that you have enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed learning! I’ll leave you with a quote that I started with, by Anne Frank,

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
