3oK+ Hits on Trending News Articles, Latin Post

Fincham.Newsroom photoI remember the first time I had something published online. It was such a big accomplishment for me and I was just  16 years old.

Now with blogs being easy to publish, the biggest “accomplishment” in anything via the web is to see how much hits you can get. It may not be a lot to other people but making over 30,000 hits on one story is a big deal for me at this point in life.

My travel enthusiastic spirit started long ago when I was just 16 years old. It was my junior year, and I learned that the Humanities Institute at Hillcrest High School was planning an EF Tours trip.

I wanted so badly to go, but I had no money. The school spent a year fundraising and I was blessed to receive a $1,000 scholarship to fund half of the trip. But what about the rest?
