    "Turn it off." "No." "Fernando!" The stereo blared. "Dad." Finally, Mom took pity on me and turned the music off. It was going on our 11th hour in the van, and I was learning to hate Abba. It was torture to careen down the highway in a monstrous van with nothing but the strains of 'the...

    Mexico has been a part of me since I was born. Although, I never remember a time where I last went, I dreamed about the opportunity to revisit it again. This day soon arrived when my family and I planned a visit to go to Guadalajara. The airport in Tijuana was filled with people rushing to go to...

  • Chile

    I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Chile as a Youth Ambassador of the United States to experience the different culture, customs, food, and language. This was a 3 week, eye-opening adventure where I stayed with two volunteer families; one in Santiago, Chile, the other in Concepcion,...

    When people say the world is enormous, they are right, but it is the little things that matter, that make the earth so vast. It took one summer to show me the beauty of nature and what role I play in preserving it. One would think that at the age of thirteen that nature would not impact them so...

    “Attention passengers, we have now arrived in New York City.” Looking out the window seeing nothing but skyscrapers, now finally understanding that they actually do scrape the sky. A completely different city than my hometown Dallas, Texas. Not a single residential house in sight, just endless rows...

    Who doesn't enjoy a family trip to Disneyland? It really is a magical place of its own that can make you forget everything! It being my first time, it lifted my pessimism and reminded me of that old fantasy thinking I used to have when I was young. It was also the first family vacation we’ve had in...

    Normal 0 /*-->*/  We reached our rooms just as tiny chips of ice fell from the sky. Safely dry and warm, I stretched my hand out to feel the Parisian hailstorm. The day was gray and dreary, yet tinged with excitement. Today was my first day in Paris, France! Even if it had started snowing...
