    Italy was by-far the most amazing place I had ever been. The moment I found out last May that I would be able to go on the trip, I could hardly believe it. I had been so nervous for the auditions. See, my choir was going. Or rather, the music department for my school was setting up auditions for...

    Traveling has always been a dream of mine, to mingle with the people of distant lands, and explore far away jungles and ruins. This might be attributed to my childhood days spent reading National Geographics with Mom and Dad, or maybe it was Indiana Jones movies or my own inherent thirst for...

    Sometimes, when coming from a family that's had to work hard for everything they have, people become bitter and doubtful about life. Luckily, this hasn't happened to me just yet.

  • My group and I Attempting to Look Cool in Front of a Mural We Found in Wicker Park.

            During the summer of 2012 I had the opportunity to travel from my suburban town in Minnesota to Chicago with my youth group from church. We went with the goal to show the love of God to every person we came in contact with. We had a thirst to serve. Not to show that we were better, or...

    On a hot summer day, my best friend, Rene, and I decided to take off and enjoy his last moments living in Fontana.  We quickly left the house and drove off not knowing where we were going.  We quickly came across a small park located on the corner Curtis and Beach called Rosena Park.  We decided to...

    In the midst of five thousand sweating bodies and the excruciating humidity of Tennessee, my life took a turn. Last summer, on July 11, I headed across the country to the city of Knoxville with thirty other kids from my church youth group. As a group, we had been through a lot together, but nothing...
