Historical Tour through Washington D.C.
July 2012, Washington D.C.
I have always been a huge history buff and love to stay updated on Politics, therefore, I felt extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. in July 2012.
Although it was only a short trip, I was able to see numerous attractions and learn a great deal about the United States government.
While in Washington, I was able to see the Lincoln Memorial, the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, the Ima Jima Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, The Washington Monument, and many other fascinating attractions.
This trip not only reinforced my love for history and politics but also made me realize that Washington D.C. is a city I would love to live in one day. Upon graduation, I am hoping to get the chance to take an internship in the city.

Study Abroad in Italy and Spain
April 2010, Rome, Assisi, Florence, Pisa, Italy and Barcelona, Spain
As part of a high school study abroad trip, I had the opportunity to spend two weeks touring through the most beautiful cities of Italy and Spain in April 2010.
Our trip began in Rome, where we were able to see the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, and tour the Vatican City.
From there, I traveled to the stunning nunneries in Assisi and was able to see the Basilica of St. Francis.
Our final two stops in Italy consisted of visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa and then a few days in Florence. While in Florence, I got to see the statue of David and the Ponte Vecchio Bridge.
The final stop on my European vacation was in Barcelona, Spain where we were able to see Sagrada Familia and Park Guell.
During the summer of 2013, I am planning on studying abroad in Madrid, Spain and I cannot wait to once again explore Europe and learn about the Spanish culture.
I hope to travel the world and currently have a bucket list of over 150 places I would love to see!
