  • On spring break of 2012, my school took a select group of French students to see France itself.

  • One minute I was sitting in an auditorium with 50 other school mates learning about singing in Disney World and the next I was standing on stage in Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida.  That’s the only thing I remember about performing.  Crazy, right?  I know.  But let’s rewind about seven months...

  • Yes, the rumor is true!  Seven nights, eight days in the magical city of Riviera Maya at a five star resort is a pretty nice vacation.  Staying in a gorgeous, beachfront suite with a beautiful, luxurious patio makes it even better.  Oh, and did I mention, there was a beach, wave pool, lazy river,...

  • Lunch in Diocletian’s Palace             The triple digit degree heat was barely noticeable over the faint sound of acapella in the distance.  My mother, aunt, and I wandered through Split, Croatia, searching for a place to eat lunch.  Winding our way through the twists and turns of the stony paths...
