Ever since I joined the International Visitors Council of Los Angeles as an intern, I have always wanted to meet with the visitors that I usually write proposals for, or, after I have become a part-time project assistant, draft the itineraries for.

Hello World, Yes, I know. I’ve been neglecting the blogging life for quite awhile, but here I am again! I wanted to tell you all about the amazing organization I’m part of here at USC.

Having finished my first semester at USC, I feel as though I’ve finally settled into college life and have fond memories – both academically and socially – from last semester that I’ll never forget. I’ve also cemented myself as a member of the Trojan family, making lifelong friends and connections that I’ll be forever grateful [...]

Knowing I helped make history is a really cool feeling. On November 6, 2012, with the reelection of Barack Obama as president of the United States of America, we all made history. It’s crazy to think how close the election was and how every vote really did count. I have a TV in my apartment, [...]
