When Life Gives You Lemons

By Tama Bankhead, Operations Assistant A few years ago I was at the pregnancy crisis center that I had been volunteering with for a while.  It was a normal day, very busy, lots of people coming and going (this location also helped people that needed community service hours, a food pantry and children’s clothing, to name a few).  My phone was running low so I plugged it in to recharge then stepped away from my desk for a few minutes.  When I came back, my phone and charger had been reassigned to another owner.  Someone had stolen it!

I’ve always been a lover of travel and adventure, and so fate should have it that I be the ONLY student from the thousands at American University to choose Hong Kong for their spring semester. I thought, “This is even better! An adventure completely on my own!” I was wrong. Being alone in a country for months where you don’t even know the language is hard. Making new friends, finding travel buddies, ordering was all hard. In…
