  • I scuff at the orange dust with my flip-flop and stare at our cinder-brick house. It’s all packed up—my life stowed in Tupperwares tied expertly to the top of our Land Rover.The whole village has come to see us off, and Na Nyima surveying our house doubtfully asks Daddy in Tanda if we really were...

  • From July 8th-14th, I spent a week away in New York City for a summer fashion program at LIM college (www.limcollege.edu). It was my first week away on my own and it taught me a tremendous amount about living on my own. I’ve always been interested in fashion and was excited to learn more about...

  •    I stood on the deck of the ferry, closed my eyes and inhaled. I could smell the salt water, and I heard the seagulls calling as they flew overhead. I opened my eyes and stared over the gray New England water at the island. I could see sandy beaches, and if i squinted, I could almost see tiny...

  •             95-degree heat, intense humidity, and 480 descending stairs create quite a bit of exhaustion and sweat.  Luckily the plethora of stairs led to a magnificent, 229-foot tall crystal-clear waterfall with cascading frigid water.  Talk about refreshing!  That is right; swimming is allowed in...

  • The conditions were miserable. Claustrophobia struck me as I felt the wet arms of my sixteen friends while we rode along the Jamaican countryside in a fifteen-passenger van. I had every reason to complain: there was no air-conditioning; I was tired and hungry; and, of all things, it began to rain...

  • The alarm clock buzzes at six in the morning and I immediately shoot out of bed.  Despite the early start, I contentedly wake up and start packing as I review my checklist—towel, fresh ripened mangoes from the backyard, coconut water and a bathing suit.  While everyone else is still frantically...
