  • when we got to the village, I could not wait to see what else there was to discover. As I unpacked my bags, I heard  chirping. I ran to the window, and on the oak tree, I saw a bird. The singing was so beautiful that it made me feel welcomed. To the left of the tree was a little, noisy, crystal...

  •                 It was summer of 2009 and for the first time I had left my family for 16 days. As I approached the airport, I began to shed tears once again. Not knowing why, I began to question myself if it was because I was leaving my family for 16 days or was it because I have never received the...

  • I lost my camera the moment we stepped foot in South Africa. This wasn’t an ideal start to my trip, especially since this was the Culver Academies 2012 Spring Break in Mission where our group of participating girls, myself included, expected either lions or elephants upon arrival. We received...

  • My story begins with an early morning in mid-July.  The air was thick and humid with a temperature creeping near the 100 degree mark, not uncommon for Texas during the summer. Assiduously, my mother and sister coaxed me in to the Dodge “Dualy” that would be delivering us to our destination 1700...

  • On July 3rd, 2007, I embarked on an experience I would never forget. After going through multiple interviews, I was one of the lucky few chosen to travel to Europe for 21 days. While in Europe, I visited six countries: Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, and England. While they...

  • Bang! Bang! Bang! The pounding noise of the gavel brings me back to reality. I am at the Broward County courthouse and I am with my youth group from church. August 14, 2009 marks the date that I took a trip to the Broward county courthouse and Juvenile Center, the trip that changed my life....

  • In the summer of 2006, my brother, Oliver, and I traveled to Vancouver, Canada by plane to tour. This was my first time going to Canada and to be honest, I wasn't really excited to go. From what I've heard Canada was a gigantic wilderness larger than the United States but with only a fraction of...

  • Delhi at Noon; peak of its traffic. The bourgeois, prosperous and poor all traveled on the streets, the lunch rush hour. Each breath taken was full of exhaust and the thickness of the air clogged throats at 115 degrees, typical day in Delhi. Being fortunate I could access all the luxuries of the...
