  • I go to Rancho Alamitos high in Garden Grove, California and on February 25, 2010, my classmates and I went out to San Francisco. The trip was paid for in the Avid club and the purpose for it was to go and visit universities, such as Stanford, UC Davis, UC Mercedes, Berkeley, Stanislaus, and...

  • Family Road Trip: Waking up at five a.m., quickly eating, and getting dressed with my eyes half open and my body pleading I go back to bed. But sleep is not an option when my parents are planning to be on the road by six a.m. Once I finally got into our sparkling blue van, I felt the ache of...

  • My fantastic city of Saint Clair Shores often referred to as “The Gateway to the Great Lakes”. You will have boundless access to plenty of recreational opportunities both on land and water. There are three waterfront and ten neighborhood parks to come and enjoy. Where you can sit by the lake or...

  •      When my uncle asked about my interest in attending a youth camp sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Turkey for two weeks at no cost to me, the thought never crossed my mind that it would be the most life-changing two weeks in my young life. The summer of 2009 sent me overseas for over four...

  •   It is hard to comprehend a world untouched by human existence, the raw natural beauty unseen by civilization. To look upon a land unnoted in the history of the world would be overwhelming to the point of disbelief. Standing above Jenny Lake looking out across the vast expanse of snow covered...

  • One of the best family trips that I have ever taken was when my family flew down to Phoenix, Arizona. I had the time of my life and almost every day I will bug my mom about going there again, much to her annoyance, but I know that she wants to go back too. This trip did make me open my eyes more...

  • Over the summer of 2010 I went on the trip of a lifetime. I spent ten very short days in Europe with people I had gone to school with; they were almost complete strangers to me. I have always been the quiet girl and have kept to myself, over those ten days everything changed. Not only did I make...
