  • In June, 2011 my family and I went to Maui, Hawaii for a week. This was provided to us through Make-A-Wish. My 14 year old brother, Zacahary, is a heart patient and he chose a vacation to Hawaii for his wish. It was in the beginning of the summer so we were surrounded by many people and of course...

  • For as long as I can remember, my immediate family, my cousins, and I have always camped at a state park for a few days during summer vacation.

  • I used to be a robot. Pre-Summer 2011 I was only functioning. I breathed, talked, and walked like a human, but I never quite felt human. All I cared for were grades and test scores; I didn’t sing, play or dance. In order to preserve my robotic sense-of-self I refused to break my comfort zone for...

  • Schools out for the summer but that doesn’t mean it’s time to stop learning.  An education doesn’t always present itself in the form of text books, life experience is a valuable tool.  Who would have thought that at the age of sixteen, checking into the Cozy Cone Motel at Disneyland’s California...
