Traveler Bio

Salut (Hello), fellow travelers and adventurers! My name is Hunter Person, and I'm a passionate explorer with a deep-rooted love for immersing myself in diverse cultures and uncovering the wonders of our world.

Raised in a small village nestled in southeastern Ohio, with a population of fewer than 2,000 people, I felt a yearning to expand my horizons beyond the close-knit community I called home. This desire led me to pursue higher education at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, where I am currently studying political science/pre-law, although I am also considering a degree in international business.

As I embarked on my sophomore year of college, the urge to explore and broaden my worldview grew stronger. After months of diligent research and discussions with my advisors, I made the exciting decision to journey to Paris, France, to attend business school.

While my long-term aspirations revolve around working for esteemed international organizations like the European Union or the United Nations, I believe that this opportunity to immerse myself in the vibrant culture of Paris is an essential stepping stone towards understanding different perspectives and lifestyles around the globe.

Bonjour from the City of Light, and here's to the beginning of an enriching journey toward embracing the diversity and interconnectedness of our world!
