  • I have always been captivated by stories of people who, when traveling abroad, became consumed by a “larger than life” feeling – the powerful sensation that there is something bigger out there than the mundane hum of a small New Jersey town.              “Beware of the bug,” I was told prior to...

  •    As a teenage mother from Brooklyn it’s difficult to go on trips; thus, no matter how small a trip it matters to me.           An early Thursday morning around 7:00am I woke up feeling my eyes so heavy.
