  • I was part of a summer camp program where we explored different kinds of careers that we would like to pursue in college. On this day, we went to Galveston, Texas to find more information about Marine biology and many other careers that involved working with the ocean and its sea creatures. We went...

  • There is a place in the world to which I will never return.  I will never again wish to feel the heat of the sun there, never wish to feel the weight of the air there.  Never will I choose to view its blandness, breathe its saltiness.  The saltiness of the Salton Sea.  On a regular trip down...

  • As I slowly opened my eyes, my vision became clear as light faded and my eyes focused, and then I remembered that I was on a field trip with the MESA organization to the Griffith Observatory.

The pier had the smell of the salted sea and the wet wooden dock. A welcoming sign stood tall and hefty, warming our minds to the thought of...

  • In my state, New Mexico, the name of the title says it all, “ Land of Enchantment”. Enchantment coming from the Great caverns in southern New Mexico to the open flat plains in Eastern side. As well as the Southern Rocky mountain chain in northern part of the state. The city I stay in is...

  • Once that breeze hit me,  I knew that I was never going back; back to the heat, the sweat, the tans, the obnoxious and drunk tourists, the big casinos, the night life, and all the commotion that Las Vegas has to offer. That's what I realized on my trip to the beach. Those many deep shades of blue...
