Hello! (Introduction)

Hello! My name is Cade Irwin and I am a sophomore at George Washington University. I am originally from Northern Virginia, so I have stayed pretty close to home aside from moving into the city for school. (I am the one on the left with the rest of my family and grandmother)

I have not done a Dragons course before or anything similar to it so I am very excited! I am looking forward to the homestays and seeing Bagan. I chose this program because I figured it would be challenging, enriching, and a rare opportunity. I look forward to meeting you all in person soon!

I also came across an interesting quote the other day and figured I would share it here too:

“When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.” – Steve Jobs
