Emma OttumName: Emma Ottum

Hometown: I originally grew up in Encinitas, San Diego. I then moved to Los Gatos in the Bay Area when I was 12 years old. 

What is your favorite book?: I love to read and have read many enjoyable books. I would have to say that my favorite book out of all of them would be A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. The book is about a 23 year old-alcoholic and drug abuser and tells of his struggles through the 12 steps of rehab. Originally, I was reading this book as a true story and memoir, but sadly they found out later that the author made up a lot of the events. I would still advise reading it though. 

Give one random fact about you?: my dream when I was little was to become a race car driver and I love talking about cars. 

In class what kind character are you?: The one who always talks too much and will get to know everyone in the class

If you were a fruit, what would it be?: A banana- I’ll supply you with my energy to keep you going through the day.

What do you think will be surprising about India?: I think seeing the culture and the poverty in India will be surprising. I’ve never been anywhere this far away, and seeing the differences of how people live there lives compared to how we live ours will be very interesting, and possibly difficult to comprehend.

What has been difficult about preparing for India?: Actually realizing that I’ve been given the chance to travel to India with such an amazing group of students. I don’t think it will fully kick in until I’m in on the plane. 

How do you hope to be different after this trip to India?: I hope that I will be different in the way that my eyes will be finally be opened to the joys and struggles of what people go through living in India. You always hear about the poverty and overpopulation there, but can never full grasp how serious it is until you see it for yourself. I also hope that the culture will change me.

The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!|

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this particular challenge and it does supply us a lot of fodder for thought. Nonetheless, because of what I have seen, I just simply wish when the commentary pile on that individuals keep on point and not start upon a tirade involving some other news du jour. Anyway, thank you for this exceptional piece and though I do not necessarily agree with the idea in totality, I respect your point of view.

    What you said was very logical. However, consider this, what if you wrote a catchier post title? I am not saying your information is not good, however what if you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean BLOG_TITLE is a little boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article headlines to grab people to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.|

It is obvious everyone here gained a lot of knowledge concerning this and the other hyper links and types of info like wise show it. Typically i’m not on the net all of the time although when I get a chance i’m usually perusing for this sort of information and others closely having to do with it. If you get a chance, have a look at my website. snorkeling tours
