Actual Transcription:

Before I finish school, I would like to go study abroad to learn another language and experience another culture. I'm really interested in studying Japanese, so I might apply for a program in Japan. Of course, I need to earn enough money to pay for tuition and living expenses, but I think that I first need to pick up a little of the language and learn something about the country so I can adjust quickly to the culture. Such an experience should help me develop an understanding of others---the way they live, think, and believe--and this knowledge should help me in my future career.
