Thanks in advance
I have a concern about the punctuation. As it is written, it is difficult to determine if "explore" is separate from experiences or if it is explore new experiences and gather new experiences. If it is the former, then a comma after "explore" would make it clearer. If it is the latter, then I would question the phrase "explore new experiences". I don't know how one explores an experience. The comma we are talking about is called the serial comma (Oxford comma) -- a comma before "and" in a series. Some people insist on it in a series; others consider it optional. This is one case, however, in which the Oxford comma may be needed for clarity.
