Craig Nelson, 23, of Harrisonville, Mo. was sitting alone in the Plaster student union today. He caught my eye from a seperate table. He had an awful lot of papers sitting on his table and his phone was vibrating every few seconds. At first it was annoying, but then it appeared like he was doing a lot of work. So, I decided to bug him. Turns out, he was an interesting person.
Craig Nelson is double majoring in Global Studies and Spanish at Missouri State University. He plans to travel around the world when he graduates. He loves traveling. An ideal job for him would have him in different countries for several days. He might take other language classes so he can understand a lot of languages to make it easier to do business with others.
Craig studied abroad when he was younger. He went to Argentina and to Chile. While in South America he skied in the Alps. He remembers the days he spent in on the mountains vividly, “It snowed so hard one day, I could barely see the guy right in front of me.” He hopes to return some day. “South America is a fun place,” says Craig.
When he graduates, he’s not exactly sure what job he wants to get into. All he is certain of is that it will take him around the world. He might visit South America quite a bit. He really misses the times he spent studying abroad. He made a lot of friends down there.
His interests of traveling got me interested in him. I’ve only been outside of the country once, when I was younger, and out of Missouri three times. I’ve wanted to travel more, but never have the time. So, hearing his stories really got me interested. His take on traveling inspired me to make time to travel.
