  • Off I go...

    Travel Journal from United States Illinois, United States | Wed Aug 20, 2014

    It’s 3pm CST in Terminal 5 of O’Hare International in Chicago. As I sit here waiting for my flight, I am thinking on all of the things and people that came together to make this trip a reality.  Already this has been quite a learning experience for me; navigating passport and visa applications, juggling communications between various government agencies, universities and programs.

It eventually got hard to find an opportunity to do so with the changes in social scheduling that happen during Ramadan …

  • Back in the US After A Year Abroad

    Travel Journal from United States South Carolina, United States | Tue Aug 05, 2014

    Since being back in the US for the last two and half months, I thought it was about time to make my last blog in video form, where I converse about all of the trials and tribulations I have underwent since my re-entry in the USA and the life I left behind just a year ago. Also, I include all of the advantages I have gained and the future goals …
