  • Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to go to New York City. Being raised way out in the country; something about such a big city drew me in. Every summer I would beg my parents to let me go. Eventually their will powers caved, and the summer after my freshman year I arrived at LaGuardia...

  • On April 30th, 2011, my high school show choirs had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete at FAME Indianapolis for the Show Choir National Cup.  We had a successful competition year beforehand, with all first places at six local competitions, but this was a chance to put our name and town...

  • Rather than waking up to the drone, hackneyed roar of snow plows in Maine, we were carried out of bed by the soothing lullabies of the restless co’ qui frogs and the pungent aroma of juicy, apple-filled empanadas. “Can I extend my trip?” I remember inquiring to myself that morning.

  • As the plane grazed the ground, I began to wonder what exactly had lead me to be sitting here. I had no intentions of leaving my home in the United States to explore the Emerald Isle. I thought of my English teacher's announcement, only ten days before her trip about how a spot had opened up for...

  • The greatest trips are the unexpected ones. This was the case for my family in April 2012. We were headed back home from a youth convention in New Orleans, Louisiana when we decided to visit family in Mississippi. After we left from their home, we went and stopped on the beach. It was our first...

  • Joshua Leatherwood   On my summer vacation in 2010, I went to Blue green resort in Orlando, Florida. It was quite the experience. It wasn’t too far away from Disney World or Sea World and it was near a lot of great stores and scenery. Orlando lit up a night, the cars were abundant, and it was...

  • Antawan Brown     “Yes we can”. I am guessing you know who this person of great change is. This year I got a experience of a life time that changed me forever as a person of the United States. I go to a school which ironically is called The Facing History School. We are all about change with not...

  • When the machete-wielding tiger-fighting farmer began growling, I looked up at Mom and Dad. "Are those the sounds tigers make?" "Yes Elliot, but I'm sure that we'll be fine." It was scary without the tiger-calls. Night already in the process of falling, we were in a jungle, in a third world country...

  •      This past June my mom and I headed off with fifteen other parents, teachers, and students from my school to Italy, France and Spain. I was particularly excited to experience different cultures, as well as test out my Spanish skills. It was a trip I will never forget.      Rome was a place...
