The explorer that would influence me too immigrate to the area he explored would be JOHN CENA! Ha, just kidding. It would be John Cabot. Wow! The person I did the report on? Yes, yes indeed. Why you may ask yourself. Well, the place he explored (modern day Canada) just seems like a place that speaks out to me.
Also, he disappeared / died, looking for that land! I want his discovery to be loved just like it is today. Another reason is that, I want to see new places that I haven't seen before. New sights, places, people, and culture! The place he found just seems like a nice place.
