I’ve only been out of school for 2 weeks and this summer break has already been amazing. I got to travel to two cities, Minneapolis and Chicago, and see two concerts, Paul Simon and Beyonce. Additionally, I got to hike out all my residual finals’ stress in Eastern Iowa at Maquoketa Caves State Park. Even with all the fun I’m having, I’m already prepared for my two summer classes and have a head start on my applications for grad school and the Fulbright-National Geographic Storytelling Fellowship. I’m really excited to see what this summer has in store. Check out some photos from my adventures so far!
