Toggle ItemWhat do you love most about Geography?

Toggle ItemWhat led you to choose Geography as your major?
"As someone with lots of interests, it was hard to pick a major, but as I started taking geography classes I realized how it applies to other interests like psychology, womens studies, civic engagment and even my love of trader joes, and estate sells! Geography teaches me about how the physical environment shapes humanity."
