    Two years ago in the middle of January, I felt the calling to go to Guatemala for a mission’s trip. It was the most life-changing journey that I have ever been on. I had never been out of the United States or even on an airplane before. So, I had no idea what this trip was going to be like or what...

    I woke up to one of San Francisco’s foggy summer mornings, already excited about going to Boracay, Philippines. My mom was stirring anxiously, readying me for the trip. After an uneasy goodbye with my parents, I joined my cousin and uncle on a 16-hour plane ride to the Diosdado Macapagal...

    My first impression upon my arrival to the city was a strong one. Although I wasn’t sure what I expected exactly, what lay out before me was definitely not it. St. Petersburg was, by far, the most beautiful place I had ever seen.  One of my favorite parts of my stay was seeing the architecture. The...

    Every few years, my family packs the car and we head to my grandmother’s house for the holidays.  My grandmother lives in a small farm community just west of Chicago, called Somonauk, Illinois.  Most years we gather with other aunts, uncles and cousins that also make the trip from their homes in...

    Over the summer of 2010 I went on the trip of a lifetime. I spent ten very short days in Europe with people I had gone to school with; they were almost complete strangers to me.
