  • 'Pura Vida' 'Pura Vida'. Roughly translated, Pure Life. A phrase that to us means so little, yet to Costa Ricans has an abundance of meanings.   This summer I was privileged to receive an invitation that would allow me to strengthen my faith in God and permit me to spread His word. When I first...

  • For most people their hometown is boring, but once in a while they discover something truly magical.  This experience usually comes through someone else.  Using emotions we become interested.  This happened to me on July fifteenth while bike riding with my cousin, Alisha.  She was visiting us...

  • The first thing people think of when they hear the word "Oregon" is rain.  Dreary, drizzly, non-stop bleariness Oregon. In contrast, I picture the white-crested waves of the Lincoln City Beach, the snow-dusted slopes of Mount Hood, the cascading waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge, and sky-...

  •   My summer in Germany has forever stamped an impression on my life. During the course of my trip I had a variety of experiences; all of which have aided me in my growth as a person. I made lifelong friends who accompanied me in that adventure.       During the month of June a group of high school...

Last summer, we went to St. Petersburg, FL. There we were privileged to work with a migrant workers ministry through TEAMeffort. The people in this ministry came from different cultures and were economically disadvantaged.   They...

  •   Every summer, for as for back as I can remember, I have gone to the beach with my family for vacation. The beach, with its boardwalk and its waves, has become almost as much a home to me as my hose in Maryland. Every year, my family piles in the car and heads off to ocean city for a week. We...

  • During the summer of 2009, my family and I embarked on a memorable trip to Texas. My mom lived there until 1978, when my grandparents decided to relocate their family of four to South Carolina. My mom had many family members who still lived there, and it had been a while since the Carolina-born...

  • Growing up I never truly felt Chinese.  This is probably because my family is far from the stereotypical Asian Family.  I am only half-Chinese, on my father’s side. Due to this, I never really felt fully connected to my Chinese roots. Until my trip to China at age 13, everything regarding the...
