  •               Winter of 2009, I decided to travel across the globe to one of the fastest growing and technologically advanced countries in this century: South Korea.

  • It was the summer of 2011 when some of my family members arrived in New York City.  They live in Colombia and our only chance to spend time together is for a couple of weeks every other summer.

Not very many Americans can say they’ve been to both New Zealand and Australia. I had the honor of...

  • The breeze sifts through my hair like a million playful butterflies; the sky is a singular swath of blue above my head; 160 feet below is the splendor of the Hudson River. I am walking on the longest pedestrian bridge in the world. Once a rusted up railroad structure that went out of service in...

  • By the age of 16, I had travelled all over the country: California, Wyoming, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, every state on the east coast, and all of New England, including several self-navigated trips to Boston. But this past summer, I took a trip to New York City that stretched my mind farther...
