  • In the summer after my junior year of high school, I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to travel to France for two weeks with my school's French Club.

  •          When I was a sophomore at Hercules High Middle High School in March of 2008, I was allowed to go to the Mexico Outreach program in MexiCali with my previous school, El Sobrante Christian.
