  •             Going on vacation to California was a time that I will never forget because to me it was like an adventure.

Nonetheless, my initial naive and judgemental notion instantly vanished when I saw the lake; I was simply amazed by...

  • I believe people change and become stronger due to encounters and tough situations they have faced. When I first began my journey on the road to maturity, I thought I had faced it all.
