All of my mother’s side of the family can trace their ancestry to Ireland. Personally, this trip to Dublin will be an invaluable experience to get perspective on how my ancestors lived. Also, it will provide me with stories and pictures which I can share with my parents and grandparents. I know that they have always wanted to go to Ireland, so they will be very interested to hear my perspective. Professionally, I am excited to tour technology companies in Dublin. Ireland is a large hub for the tech industry in Europe, so visiting the businesses will be an amazing opportunity to ask questions and learn about this industry. Similarly, I hope to understand business from a non-American perspective. I would like to understand perspectives on working hours, paid time off, and other workers rights differences.
