    When the youth asked me to accompany them as their Translator to Honduras, I was thrilled; we would be staying in a family-run hostel called El Cortijo Del Lago up in the mountains, in Guama, Honduras.      After landing in San Pedra Sula, we were picked up, and shown the city. Two things different...

  • Ever since I can remember, I’ve had an undeniable longing to travel the world. I had watched my parents and sisters tour through indescribable places, and all I wanted was my own opportunity.

  • My chicken soup

    Beads of sweat coated my forehead as I took a deep breath and stared at what was in front of me, eyes narrowed and concentrated. A million thoughts ran through my mind, and I glanced back and forth from my parent’s concerned faces to the object in my grip. Everything around me seemed to move in...
