During our conversation with Hoda I couldn’t help but reflect on the opportunities that I have missed out on due to my fear of the unknown and lack of spontaneity. The fear of not knowing where a road leads is real, reasonable, and something we all can relate to. In Episode 9 of the 1st Person Podcast, Hoda tells us the story of how she overcame this fear during her 3 weeks away in Seattle, WA.

Andrew speaks about culture shock and learning to go with the flow while on his adventure through Southeast Asia and elsewhere. So many people would tell you when you take yourself out of your comfort zone and have new experiences, you change as a person. It's cliché because it's true. In Episode 4 of the 1st Person Podcast, Andrew shares about his shift in worldview after being exposed to new spaces, new cultures, and the challenges faced on his journey.

Sometimes we have to get away from it all to put things in perspective. We grow quite a bit by traveling to different places. Often times we learn about ourselves more than anything else. In Episode 2 of the 1st Person Podcast, Neno talks about a paradigm shifting moment he had during his adventures through Colorado.
