  • For as long as I can remember, my family and I traveled a lot. In January of 2009, we visited New York for the third time. My siblings and I were born in New York, but we never got an opportunity to stay there for a long period of time. It was a great feeling knowing that I was going back to my...

Our tour group was a mixture of different races for...

  • My community is a small town nestled between the mountains that form Utah Valley. At first glance, it probably looks like just some town in some state, but that's only because a person needs to stay a little longer to see the true beauty of Cedar Hills, Utah. Cedar Hills is potentially a...

  • I did it! I did it! I convinced my parents to send their fifteen year old daughter to Europe! I couldn't believe it!  It was all really happening; the luggage, the tickets, the passport, I was on my way to England, France, and Italy with my drama troupe!  I lay in bed all night awake, practically...
