Picnic

I have not written in a while – I apologize. Today I went to a picnic with an association where I have one of my internships. There were about twenty kids that went and they came with their families – moms, dads, sisters and brothers, grandparents – and we had a great time. It was […]

In Denial

I am leaving January 30 to go to a completely new world. Knowing no one. Having to trust complete strangers, a different culture, and my host family to teach me the ropes. In a completely different language that I am not comfortable speaking. Nervous? That’s not even the word to describe it. In my eyes […]
