  • This summer's end, I was invited to join into the life and glamour of two most fabulous cities of the west coast - Los Angeles, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. When I first heard of the two cities, two words came to my mind - luxury and excitement. I was excited to join the millions of people in...

  • In the summer of 2007, my parents and I took a trip to Romania. Landing in the city of Timisoara, I noticed that this trip was not going to be the way I had planned.

  • My heart was beating fast as I speed walked through the entrance of Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure, my family struggling to keep up. I ignored Seuss Landing’s whimsical atmosphere as well as the Lost Continent’s exotic landscape. My face broke into a ridiculously huge grin as I rounded...

  •            Bangladesh is a country so small; it can fit 73 times into America. Even with the drastic difference in size, Bangladesh has 1/3 of America’s population.

  • Moving from New York to Florida- Deltona, Florida no less, was, undoubtedly one of the worst moves of my short life. I was used to the fast paced, hectic, yet wonderful life of a New Yorker.
