Even though we sounded a lot like rivals to each each other during class, when we arrived in Marriott Marquis in New York City, we were a big family. I was thrilled with how knowledgeable my professors and fellow classmates were in this field. We were able to travel together on flights, trains, buses as a single group. Together, we toured some of the most famous sites in the U.S. Moreover, we shared food, hotel rooms, televisions, and interests. The enthusiasm from both students and professors reminded me that I was not alone, and I could always get help and help others.

As I returned from my trip, slowly unpacking my belongings, I was definitely fighting to keep my eyes opened. Before I fell into a deep sleep, I tried to recall all of the lessons from throughout the semester. I hope that I will remember all of it, as detailed as I can. Let me take some time to reconcile all the hardship that we had to go through before the trip to NYC.

I signed up for a study abroad trip around October of 2011.
I have stated before that New York City is my dream city. I cannot tell you how much I want to visit there. This trip is not starting in the summer…or next winter break…it starts in- 2 hours! That’s right, it’s about 5 a.m. right now. You heard me right. I have been packing my stuff to get ready to take the shuttle to Charlotte Airport. As I am packing, I felt inspired to write a blog about this.
