I love how you begin with the personal connection before drawing closer to the prompt at the end. It makes me feel curious as to how it relates and that curiosity makes me keep reading until your incredible and sincere style takes over that job. Writing this about someone who you are close to and who pushes you to be better draws me in as a reader as well, because that connection is something powerful and relatable.
You mention your tiny island where you all speak the same. And I can see from your bio where that is, but could you say in the piece, maybe tell us a little about the culture of Dominica and contrast that with the culture of the places you want to go to?
Amazing piece. It's brief, but you paint your dreams and your relationship to you best friend amazingly in that short time.
If you expand this piece, paragraph breaks might be useful. But as-is they aren't necessary.
