Colombia 2017

Entering third year was quite different for me compared to others. Instead of returning back to the university, I had the chance to fly out to Colombia for two weeks.

One year.

Time heals the pain – everyone. “It’s going to be fine.” “You’re in shock.” “It’s fine to cry.” “I am sorry for your loss.” The words that everyone will hear in their lifetime when they lose a loved one. I heard these words this time last year when I lost my cousin and my grandmother. […]
