[Editor’s Note: This article was written by Olimpia Carias, who just finished her junior year, majoring in English Literature with a minor in Spanish.] It didn’t hit me yet as I was making sure everything I needed was in my carry on. “Pack lightly!” they had said and so I debated if I had too… Read More ›
