Hey guys! Sarah and I flew down to Texas to visit our cousin Daniel in Dallas for a week this past summer. We also road-tripped to Austin and declared BUC-EE’s or bust.
I guess things really are bigger in Texas… we pit-stopped at the World’s Largest Convenience store! It had 60+ gas station pumps as well.

What is Enactus you say? Maybe I’ve never posted something to briefly explain it but I’ll do so now! But first, feel free to check out my vlog I just uploaded of the National Exposition in late May:
Honestly, Enactus is such a broad program (a global one) and it stands for ENtrepreneurial ACTion US. At my university, we have several projects which cover more than six of the United Nation’s 17 Global Goals.
Our projects range from teaching financial literacy to men recovering from opioid addiction to implementing pro-inclusion “Buddy Benches” at 33 of our city’s public elementary schools.
This year, my role as Director of Technology on the E-Board consisted of attending our project events and capturing photos and filming videos then editing them all together to help create our 17-minute visual presentation that goes along with the speech.
The United States’ Enactus Competition process starts with teams competing in their (or other) regions depending on which location they choose and then if they move on from the top tier of their league(s), they compete again at the national level in Kansas City, MO. The panel of judges consists of Fortune 500 company executives or their representatives and the criteria includes project sustainability, how well resources were used, presentation, and a question-and-answer round.
We’re so much more than this little explanation but there is not enough time in the world to cover what Enactus is so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me anything!
I’m so grateful to have experienced the Enactus National Exposition with my team once again this year and I’m hoping to continue doing so over time!
A short video of my experiences at the Enactus National Competition USA 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri aka KCMO. The event took place from May 21-23rd and my team was there from the 20th to 24th to explore the city and participate in the presentation and events. We are excited to go to the Enactus World Cup in September!
Hey guys! Last month I had the opportunity to visit Chicago for a few days. Most of these pictures were taken on the same day of exploring. I uploaded a short travel vlog;
Of course, I had to go to Millenium Park first to see THE BEAN!
We walked from Millenium Park to Navy Pier to meet up with the guys in our group and along the way, we came across these views!
There’s way to many pictures and things we saw throughout the city so I just chose a set of photos from the same general area.
Last but not least, you cannot go to Chicago without trying deep dish pizza. We chose Giordano’s!
Pro tip: DO NOT order appetizers before getting your own personal pan pizza. When they say deep dish, it’s thicc af. I could barely get through half of mine after having mozzarella sticks and other cheese-related samplers.
