  • Laughing. Smiling. Crying. Throwing family members off the dock. Swimming into the late hours of the night. Dazzling Fourth of July fireworks.  Hundreds of picturesque memories surround my lake house in the quaint town of Fitzwilliam New Hampshire. It is easy to remember the glistening lake, the...

  •  Unlike me, my mom is the spontaneous type. So, when she announced we were going on a trip over winter break, I was skeptical. Her itinerary was vague at best: land in Paris for New Year’s, stay with some guy named Frank, and return (maybe) from Madrid (roughly) four weeks later. Somewhere in the...

Finally arriving at our destination after a 12 hour plane ride, my Intercultural Student Experiences (ISE) group stepped...

In order to understand the idea of my Senior Project, it's important that you understand a little bit about me. I enjoy...

  • The small, flat building they called an airport reeked of African spices. “Welcome to Asmara,” a man in a vomit green colored jumpsuit spoke coldly. I laughed at the way his heavy accent prevented him from appropriately pronouncing the word “welcome.” I was on my way to finding out who I truly...

  • United States History has never been my favorite subject in high school. It was always one of those subjects that one has to take in order to graduate, but it was never something I ever saw myself doing for the rest of my life.That all began to change in 2005 when we took a family vacation to...

  •     I have had many wonderful trips with my family to Lima, Peru in South America, which a few times, we did have unexpected things happen to us in the process, but turned out making us laugh in the end. I’ve been born within two completely different races, White from my father’s side and...
