  • This summer, my family and I went to go visit my grandmother, Nana, in Lancaster, California. Ever since I was a baby, my family and I had made several trips out to California to see Nana. However, this year was different because both of my siblings now have their own homes and because my...

  •     My very first trip to Colombia, S.A was unfortunately not for leisure, travel or any very joyous occasion. My mother's brother in-law's father had recently passed and we were all invited to attend the services in Colombia. Out of respect for my aunt and her husband, we decided to attend these...

  • I have traveled through many states in the United States, but the trip I remember the most is one weekend when my mother, grandmother and I decided to rent a hotel on Santa Monica Beach in Southern California. I fell in love with the weather. I had never seen a sky so blue; I had never inhaled air...

  • Family: ”a social unit consisting of one or more adults together with the children they care for.” With that said, I have many families. One that has made the most difference in my life, besides the family that is my true blood, would have to be my People to People family.  We met in the summer...

  • I grew up in just about the only farm in Taiwan. Everyday after school, the wind would carry the melodies of the school bell into my ears as I sprinted back home to play in the mud. For snack, my brother and I plucked off bananas fresh from the trees. And for adventure, we would squat along the...

  • A blanket of scorching heat envelops my body, as I sit trapped inside a small boxy room. Water sizzles and sprays up over a fire of burning coals. No, this is not a horror movie, but yet an experience one may call “the most extreme.”  I’m inside a Finnish sauna. My host sister’s goal is to get the...
