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.

Written in 3/17/2012 “It begins in Fall 2009, and it will end in May 2013. I am graduating in four years.

I had gone through some arduous times to fulfill the promise I made to myself.

I’ve always had an introverted side ever since middle school. However, my intrinsic behavior, aka gut instinct, was to go OUT. I was an animal protector, field runner, biker, and the leading kid with the loudest voice.

Just recently, I decided to become an art minor. This was a very big decision in my life. It took a lot of courage to make this change. Let me give you a story behind this decision.
