Does travel make you a better person?

Billions of people travel internationally every year. We wondered, is it a need to authentically know a new place and people, or, is it all for the 'gram, aka an Instagram post?

On this episode of Can Anyone Tell Me, University of St. Thomas-Houston student Nhung Phan asks, "Does travel make you a better person?"

Host and MAX Studios Creative Director Darnell Miller talks with Dr. Hans Stockton, UST Associate Vice President of International Relations and Engagement, about travel and it's ultimate value for a person. In their conversation, they break open the difference between tourism and traveling internationally to stay for a while. Dr. Stockton tells about the importance of experience, reflection and allowing travel to surprise you. He mentions approaching it with curiosity and compassion while trying to immerse yourself in the culture around you. Finally, he shares who is his ideal celebrity traveler (spoiler alert, it's Keanu Reeves).
