What does it mean to be globally aware and why is it important?
Hi Asan, For me, to be globally aware is to carry with me throughout the day, the mindset that I am meaningfully connected to people I cannot see and lands I have not traversed. When I drink my morning coffee, I know that the hands that harvested the beans and toiled the land,often times for meager wages, were in pursuit of many of the same things as I, a way to take care of their families and a better way of life. When I reach for the faucet to effortlessly access running water, I am humbled by the thought that someone will walk several miles on blistered feet to bring back treasured buckets of this often taken for granted commodity. While I have traveled extensively and lived in other countries, I have concluded that to be globally aware is not about where you have been and what you have seen, it is about an open-heart and what you can feel.
