  •            July 8th, 9th, and 10th of 2011. I will never forget that weekend. I was changed mentally and spiritually, just in 3 days. My Mother, my Grandmother, my best friend, my sister, my neighbor and I left little Rhode Island at 3:30 in the morning and traveled 14 hours cross the country all...

  • I am always looking for new ways to expand myself and to gain knowledge about things that interest me as well as things that I have never heard of.

  •   Imagine blue skies, clear water, and white sandy beaches. Have you ever been somewhere that you can just sooth yourself in the warm cool air?

  • Seeing the crowd lined up at the cruise-ship terminal in Venice, I wasn’t sure whether my mother booked a family vacation or an extended stay at the Department of Motor Vehicles.               But who would have guessed that this would be one of the only “mass-market moments” I’d face in the next...

  •  Early this year, my maternal grandmother arrived in America for the very first time. It is her first trip out of Vietnam. She now settles in San Francsico, California where she lives with my mother's sister. She is aged 64. It was only during the summer holiday period that I was able to see her...
