    Last year I got a letter inviting me to come to an informational meeting about a trip to Australia. I thought it was too good to be true, since it was essentially my dream trip. Happily, it wasn't, and after the enrollment period I was accepted as a People to People Student...

    I went on the Great Wall and Beyond trip and ended up having a lot more fun than I would have ever thought. I had amazing friends, an amazing delegation manager, and had experiences I otherwise wouldn't have even come close to having. At home, I'm considered shy, quiet and no...

    I like meeting other incon's because we are pretty accepting people. We know that just because someone looks/acts/is a certain way, it doesnt define them as a person.

    Simple. Take responsibility for what you do. Even if it's also other people's fault, accept your fault in it. When people don't, the blame seems to be more on them.
