    Last November, I took a trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee with my best friend Anna and her parents. This was the second time we travelled there together, and hopefully not the last. We drove by car, and it took about 7 hours to get there. Tom, Anna’s dad, drove the whole way; while Anna, Sandy (Anna’...

    I remember waking that day after a bout of dreamless sleep. I remember the strangeness that resonated through me knowing that, in mere hours, Florida would be a drifting dot far beneath me. I remember the airport was filled with unfamiliar faces and scents that I tried to dissect individually,...

    I wish that you, The panel of judges, or however the winner is picked for a scholarship, could see my family in action. You would give me the money as soon as possible and say, “ Oh you poor child, take the money and get as far away as possible.” They are crazy. Not in the, “Let's rob a bank” crazy...

    Every few years, my family packs the car and we head to my grandmother’s house for the holidays.  My grandmother lives in a small farm community just west of Chicago, called Somonauk, Illinois.  Most years we gather with other aunts, uncles and cousins that also make the trip from their homes in...

                I have been to Taiwan a total of three times, but each experience has been unlike the others. My first two trips were when I was younger, so I was not able to grasp the culture. When the plane landed, it was as if I had never been there before.              My most memorable trip was...

    Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to go to New York City. Being raised way out in the country; something about such a big city drew me in. Every summer I would beg my parents to let me go.
