  • Each city is significant for a distinctive reason. Some are best known for sights thought only to exist in dreams, while others possess history far more realistic than classroom textbooks can describe. Dubai is one of a kind. It has characteristics that make it similar to other cities, but its...

  • The first journey I took alone was my trip to New York City. When my art history teacher, Mr. Kessinger, told me about the trip, I wanted to go but I never thought I would get the chance to. Once my mom found out about the trip, she decided that no matter what it took, she would find a way for me...
