My trip to Chicago was the most memorable moment in 2014. Growing up, I've never travelled out of state before because my parents were always busy with work and we didn’t have the luxury to go on trips together out of state. And when I heard that we had an opportunity to go to Chicago to learn about transportation and pedestrian safety there, I was excited to go. This was an opportunity where I was able to experience something new and rewarding. Since it was my first trip out of state and my first time on the plane, I was overly anxious and excited. When I arrived at Chicago everything was
very fascinating because many things seemed foreign to me, since I am familiarized to San
Francisco, so finding out how small Chicago Chinatown was, surprised me. These moments are unforgettable and I will remember my first trip with my friends. When I look back I can reminisce how excited I was and how foreign everything was to me. I am very thankful for this opportunity to be able to travel and I look forward to going back to Chicago one day.
