    In the beginning of my senior year, I joined a club at school called the Aesthetic Voyagers. This club was established so students could have the ability to travel with their peers and experience a new area. I was ecstatic about the idea of the club and joined immediately. Our biggest trip we went...

               In the summer of 2008 I had the opportunity to visit the country of Japan. I was invited by the People to People Student Ambassador Programs to travel and received a primary access to the major metropolitan districts as well as the rural towns across Nippon.

         A couple years ago, I attended my high school's bi-annual music trip. All students who participate in band or chorus are eligible to attend, so there were quite a few students who went alone on the trip, whether I liked it or not.
