In the midst of what I thought was the worst experience in the summer of 2009, I found a new perspective of life and re-evaluated my definition of beauty. My trip to Fall Creek Falls, with my Governor’s School Class was mind...

  • As I stepped off the plane, I could hardly believe this was real. I was 17 years old and in the Dominican Republic for a school led mission trip.
