Visiting Russia meant so much to me. It gave me something to take pride in. It put a joy in me that no one can take. At age 12, I learned to speak Russian and I worked extra hard to learn my music. I felt like I was going to take on a new world. The experience I had will travel with me all the days of my life and I would be honored if my under classmates got to feel what I felt.

Our chorus' tour was to Rome, Italy with the famed conductor, Leonard Bernstein to sing for Pope Paul VI. As I recount the experience, it seems even more amazing than when it happened. It was not only my first trip on a plane, but also my first time traveling more than thirty miles away from my neighborhood. The trip exposed me to a new world of experiences that were available to me, and no doubt encouraged me to pursue and accomplish them.
