To enter to win, you must submit a video, and a brief written document of your intention in taking your journey abroad. Upon your return, we ask that you submit another short video, and a brief one page essay detailing the aspects of your journey of transformation.
WalknTalk's intention in forming the WalknTalk Dream Box Scholarship:
As a brand WalknTalk was formed on study abroad in Argentina in 2011. The quest for oneself begins with seeing all life as a journey, and a commitment to self-actualize one's purpose. We believe that through student exchange and other cultural exchanges that the world can grow together in ways far better than one could have imagined. The experience of seeing oneself through the lens of a different culture, and then seeing one's own culture through the lens of the other culture creates comparison. Before ones journey to another place one holds certain beliefs or expectations about that other place, and afterwards usually finds that her or his previous beliefs have been changed, informed, and clarified. Through this experience of comparison arises an opportunity for synthesis or combination of beliefs or ideas. This synthesis can be referred to as a marrying of perspectives. As perspectives are married in our minds, we grow, we learn, and we teach others.
The experience of getting lost to find yourself in another culture is a powerful one. All individuals who choose to make the leap of faith are courageous, and deserve to be heard and rewarded for leading by example.
