    I was in 7th grade when I got the news "we're going on a cruise to the Bahamas!" my brother J.D  told me excitedly, he wasn't supposed to tell me because I tend to get overly excited about things.

     Shoes. Most of us have many pairs. I know I do. But what if you only had one or two? This was the case of many of the kids I met in Quito, Ecuador.

     “We are home” my mom said as the plane landed in the Port Harcourt Local Airport in Nigeria. My mom brought my younger sister and me to Nigeria to live. I was not sure for how long but I knew I had to adjust. As we were driving to the house I saw palm trees for the first time. It was quite...

    For my senior spring break trip my three girlfriends and I went to the typical spring break destination, Cancun, Mexico.

    It wasn’t until this trip, that I thought of traveling as something I’d like to do before I got old. Before this life changing vacation, I had only been out of the country once before. When I was nine, I went to the Philippines with my family. My mom and all of her brothers and sisters were born...
