A CHANGE OF HEART

This past summer, I had the opportunity to go on a trip to Guatemala. This wasn't the first time, since my family had gone with me a couple times before, but it was the first time I was genuinely passionate about going. I had first heard about this trip being an opportunity for students and…

SPREADING POSITIVITY

Hey wonderful humans !!! It's been a bit !! I'm sorry that I've been pretty MIA lately. Ever since the start of school, life has been absolutely crazy (as it usually is). For the first month of the school year we had a family friend stay with us from Spain. It was so fun introducing…
