  • We visited Auschwitz, and saw rooms filled with shoes taken from the prisoners. I saw pictures of babies who were tortured and glass exhibits filled with human hair.

  •                  When my mom first told me that we were going to my uncles wedding in Culebra, Puerto Rico, I was beyond psyched. I had never traveled any further than a couple hundred miles from my home in Alabama, much less traveled overseas to a Spanish-speaking culture. Just the thought of it...

  • At the age of 15 I have traveled and first hand experienced what life was like in Italy, France, and Spain.  It was a once in a life time experience and I am glad I took it.

  • It all started with one simple question. “What’s in Idaho?” Those were the first words out of my mouth when my parents told me that our family was to be vacationing in Idaho. Not only was it the land that absolutely nobody wanted; it’s basically known only for growing big potatoes. And I am not a...

  •         My hometown in Pennsylvania is a small one, complete with farms, one traffic light, and one main road. To anyone who doesn‘t live here permanently, it‘s an escape. However, to those of us who live here, it‘s anything but. It lacks well, everything; in my opinion at least. So, when it came...

  •  When my sister was living overseas in Hong Kong, I jumped at the opportunity to visit her and get a glimpse of what my culture was like.  As a fifth generation Chinese-American, I feel disconnected with my heritage at times, especially when my Chinese friends speak the language and celebrate...
