Reading through it, it seems that life experiences and new information motivate your learning and that you are very open to and engaged with discoveries about yourself, the world, etc. I had to read through it a few times to get to that though. I would lead with each of the types of things that motivate you with an example. For instance, "My time experiencing other countries led me to my love of languages and desire to effectively communicate with more of the world. Seemingly smaller experiences, such as when I first hear a new song or band and wind up discovering that I like a new genre of music, or even simply coming across terms I’ve never heard of before in books, leading me to expand my horizons via a million google searches."

The Myth of American Exceptionalism
