  •               In July of 2009 I had the remarkable opportunity to visit an amazing country known as Belize. The cost was approximately 4000 dollars, and I was determined to go. Through hard work and dedication, I raised all of it. And before I knew it, I was on the plane traveling to Belize...

  • It was my first time setting foot in the most magical place on earth.  Cue the orchestral fairy dust… I was in Disneyworld!  We had seven days to hop from park to park at will, bask in the glory that was the Florida sun, and simply enjoy time together as a family.  I was excited, I was nervous, I...

  •        For nearly a year and a half I had dreamt of towering cathedrals, colorful canals, murals that spanned not just one wall but three, a little blue house, and pyramids. More than anything, the pyramids. I dreamt of Mexico City. A strange dream on most accounts, for anyone who reads the...

  • Being from a small, Florida farm town, my trip to Chicago, Illinois was filled me with culture shock.  The town, seen as quaint, quiet, and homey, had held me captive in its border’s for 17 years until I finally broke free. Going through O’Hare airport was a lesson within itself. Not only had I...
