Inspiring the next generation of travelers
Growing up, Edith says she would never have been able to go on a student tour like the one she led. “Mexican American families, we don’t let our babies go,” she laughs. “Had you offered my parents this when I was in sixth or seventh grade, my dad would have laughed in your face. Like, ‘No. She’s my baby.’” That’s part of the reason she’s so proud that her majority Hispanic group is traveling today. “The fact their parents are allowing their kids to have this experience says a lot,” she reflects. In today’s interconnected world, travel is more important than ever. And, while Edith hopes her current group will travel with her again while they’re still in school, she’s even more excited knowing these experiences will set them up with a lifelong love of travel that they’ll be able to fulfill on their own.
