  •           It's quite difficult for someone so young to understand why a place they have never visited, let alone seen pictures of , is suppose to refer to that place as "home". In a split second the way I looked at life was completely changed. I was getting ready for school when the phone rang and...

  • That day on the trip my fellow students and I had seen marvels of architecture in Florence, a festive celebration in Siena, and the vast landscapes of Tuscany.

  • Managua, Nicaragua. The volcano in the background is a constant reminder of the unpredictability of life. The combination of men on horseback and others in Toyota Prados remind us of the inequality in an underdeveloped country. There is no doubt about the beauty of the place. Natural waterfalls,...

  • If you’re fortunate enough to travel, you’re fortunate enough. Adventure is limited only to your imagination and mine was stretched on the ultimate road trip as my family made our semi-annual journey to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. With 400 years of history and 125-miles of Atlantic coast...

  •   Home felt far away as I stepped out of the airport and into the warm Philadelphia air. The nerves set in as I looked around and realized that I knew absolutely no one. I was out of my comfort zone and I began to prepare to adapt to wherever I was going next.  It was day one of my five-week...
