Waking up at 3:30 in the morning to catch a flight out of Chicago, me and my family were off to San Fransisco. I had no idea what to expect once we...

    It’s the lights, the shops, the street performers, the attractions and the people that make New York City a perfect place to explore.

We land and a guy that I do not even know comes...

    Slowly, I pulled myself up the steps that seemed a mile high. I'm so far up in the sky that there is barely any oxygen for me to breathe. The wind was strong, and the rain was cold.

    This past summer my sister introduced me to the biggest culture shock of my life. My sister, my biggest inspiration, has been living in Burundi, Africa for the past year. My mom, brother and I, having missed her a lot, got the amazing chance to visit her there. Imagine stepping onto an earth where...
