I am part of Yuujou because...
I have been to a few different countries for short periods of time, but I've always wanted to travel more. There are so many incredible places to see, things to do and people to meet around the world and I want to experience as much of it as possible.
I think we can all learn something by opening our hearts and minds to each others' differences. When you live in the same bubble for too long, it's easy to forget that others are living a vastly different life than you.
I am fascinated by the core idea of this project: creating a connection of friendship around the globe. This journey provides a safe space for the participants to be vulnerable since the teams don't know each other or their hosts. It would be wonderful to experience different cultures through the lens of those who live there, not just as a tourist. I believe that everything happens for a reason and the relationships made during the trip would be incredibly special.

nothing, unfortunately! I'm pretty frugal and usually shop around for sales or coupons before I buy anything. I really should treat myself more often!
