  •   In the summer of 2011 my family and I took our traditional trip to Orlando, Florida. Every year we go there to “escape reality” for a few days. I was super excited!

A voice that occasionally came over the speaker would change the entire ambience of the place, filling it with eager smiles and shrieks. This was...

  • When I first heard I would be going to Panama to see my family, I have to admit I was worried. My mom often talked about her Panamanian cousins and the fun times they had together, but I wasn't so sure I would really connect with them the way she did.
