                  Tennessee, the state of rolling hills, clusters of beautiful trees, and humid hot weather! This is the state I recently traveled to and absolutely loved it!

                      I have always considered myself as a silent leader. I have been going to a Christian sports camp in Branson, Missouri for the past six years. Within the camp there are three different programs.  Out of about eight hundred people I was one of the few people chosen to be apart of...

    Japan has been a part of my identity for as long as I can remember. I consider Japanese my co-first language (along with English), I celebrate all the major Japanese holidays, and I regularly drive out to Torrance with my mother to go to Mitsuwa and Marukai, two major Japanese markets at which we...
