Having our mother work for the airlines for most of our childhood has provided us with great experiences that my sisters and I consider ourselves very lucky to have had. Unlike many of the people in our tiny town, we’ve had the opportunity to visit countless, amazing places across the United States...Tags:
January 2, 2010. The hardest trip I ever had to take. The trip was to my hometown Poughkeepsie NY. I never had been so scared to go in my life. I used to love going to NY to see my family, but this time it was different. I was missing one family member. The key to our family, the apple of my eye...Tags:
On April 15th, 2012, I was on my way to Seoul, Korea for the 2nd Annual Far East Film and Entertainment Arts Festival. This was my second Far East event, and I was more than excited, for I had been placed in the film category this year. Other categories this year included garage band, Glee, stand...Tags:

My adventure began at a moment of restlessness for the people of Bogota. On our late-night van ride from the airport, the director of LIZWAN ministries, Natanael Lizarazo (hence the LIZ-), described to our small church-group the problematic situation with the city’s mass transit. The bus drivers...Tags:
I can not think of another teen my age who has had the opportunity of a life time to soar across the country and visit their family. Every year during Christmas my family and I fly to New York to visit our relatives. We usually spend a week doing the usual routine: see the whole family ( all 6 of...Tags:
This past January of 2010, I went on a mission’s trip with a group from my church to Taipei, Thailand. Our group consisted of about twenty people and we traveled over there for two weeks to provide child care for the Annual Thailand Conference (ATC). It took us 3 flights and 36 hours to arrive in...Tags:
