“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” - Maya Angelou


how it began....

It all started with Mr.Miller. Wait, no it started with my dream to live in France since forever. Mr.Miller just put the idea in my head. Mr.Miller was my European history teacher and he mentioned RYE one day and BAM, I was filling out an application. Long story short, I was chosen to go to Belgium and honestly I cannot imagine going anywhere else. I've fallen in love with a place I've never been to. I don't know if that's possible but whatever.

People ask me if I'm scared and yeah I'm scared. Who wouldn't be? Am I scared enough to not go through with it? NO. I'm scared of looking back on my life and realizing I didn't live an exciting fearless life. I'm excited, nervous and blessed. Most of all, I just can't wait to leave.

My life has changed completely and I haven't even left yet.
