I am now officially a published writer! My essay, "Made in the USA," was published in the Spring 2007 issue of the Abroad View Magazine, a national publication specializing in international education. I wrote about my experiences in Spain and what effect they had on me as an American. I got a full 2 page spread and 3 color photos. The check wasn't enough to 'quit my day job' as they say, but hopefully this will just be the beginning of my writing career. Yay!
