      Every year since I was in kindergarten all the way up to 10th grade, it seems as though everyone has a story to tell about going somewhere for the summer except for me. I’ve always dreamed about it, but I never really go anywhere. I do the same thing I do every year: tell about what I did at home...

      My name is Nayely Figueroa, my family doesn’t usually go out on trips, but when we do, the trips end up being really good ones. One of the trips I will never forget is the trip to Mulege Baja California Sur, Mexico with my parents and my cousin. On the way to Mulege my dad had told me that it...

    As I was growing up in rural and suburban Western New York, New York City seemed to be a symbol of the things that were largely inaccessible to me in the small town where I lived – diversity, culture, and freedom. During the Spring of my junior year, I finally got the chance to see it for myself...

    Who would have thought when my parents moved my family to Crawford in 1998 that my neighbors would be President Bush and Rock-n-Roll legend Ted Nugent. Both men hold a deep respect for the outdoors, hunting, guns and politics, but their contributions to society are to the extreme. As for my...

    I attended the National Student Leadership Conference for Medicine and Health Care at Northwestern University in the summer of 2010. My original plan was to learn how to be a stronger leader and learn more about the field I want to pursue, medicine.  While I did those things in the ten day...

    Indianapolis, Indiana, is most commonly known as the Crossroads of America and famous for its Motor Speedway. However, taking a look around, there’s a lot more than just the Indy 500 in Naptown.    If you like a city atmosphere, downtown Indy is a great place to visit. Directly in the center of the...

    I let my forehead hit the window of our family's giant blue Suburban. I could not believe that we had sunk so low as to visit a wood-carving museum. I had gotten used to Ohio, but a woodcarving museum in Ohio was a whole new level of lameness.      Growing up in the wealthy college town of Ann...

    During the week of this last Thanksgiving, my family and I went to New York City! If you love being busy and being a apart of the regular hustle and bustle, then this place is definitely for you to visit.                 To maximize our time in New York we left the Friday before the week...

    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...

    The last week of August 2005, a natural disaster struck the southern United States and impacted millions of lives. Hurricane Katrina caused grief, tragedy, and despair. But for me, it was a blessing in disguise. One of the 400,000 displaced citizens of New Orleans was 15-year-old Chelsea. Fearing...
