My eight grade year was the year i awaited for so long. I would be so close to leave middle school, one step closer to the school that everyone looked forward to, High School. Every eight grader looked forward to an eight grade trip we took toward the end of the year to the East Coast. It was a program called American Heritage.We would visit Philidelphia, Washington D.C, and New York. I had the best time in my life when I visited. We got to exlpore independence hall, and stand in front of the White House, and see how people sat in the front and voiced their opinions. It was such a liberal place because people of all sorts of race and ethnicities were there talking to the people. When we visited the Museum of Natural History, it was the most impressive place to be. We saw so many things there that were educating and exciting to see. We visited many monuments where important people who made a difference in our lives did speeches. The feeling I got from visiting these places was amazing. The structures built, like the capitol building, seeing as how the dome inside was painted and how important people who changed our lives on a daily bases walked the floors that i was stepping on. The biggest highlight of my trip that i can say made a difference in my life would have had to been going to see a musical on Broadway. We were blessed to go see the musical Wicked, in New York City. After seeing that musical I told myself that I would go back there and perform on that stage, singing in a musical. I have always wanted to be on Broadway and perform. This was my first trip ever crossing the country and it was amazing to see how places that are so far from the west coast could have such an impact in my life. It was the most rewarding trip I have ever made in my life.
