Growing up, all somebody wants to do is be older, have a driver’s license and go wherever they want. Stony Brook University junior Ria Hossain is almost there. She’s got her license, but the car is just out of reach at the moment.
During this podcast, she talks about her life growing up in New York City and how she has to rely on the Metro Transit Authority wherever she goes. It starts to become a pain, and her schedule starts to rely on theirs.
With a long school commute that could be easily cut at least in half and friends out on Long Island that are out of reach, a car is the only thing keeping her from the ultimate freedom of being able to go where she wants, when she wants.
