I remember being six years old and seeing NYC on the news while sitting on my couch in my living room in Poland. All the tall building and city streets did not fail to quickly capture my attention.

I was really hoping my high expectations of NYC would not be turned upside down once I actually get there. Every single person has a different interpretation of New York. Some are more enthusiastic than others but most view this city…

    the Philippines. However, I was worried about college starting and whether I would like it or not because it was something so new that I wasn’t accustomed to. I was more worried about college than the roaring of the storm outside my window. “Take this,” my grandmother whispered, interrupting my thoughts.

    Of the places I've gone that have importance to me, New York City stands out. In 2011, I was there for the second time on a spiritual excursion with a group of zealots I called friends. At the start of the journey, I had no premonition this trip could have changed my life. My parents look back on the pilgrimage as what strengthened their faith, on the contrary, I remember it as what destroyed mine. To others in my caravan it was the holy grail.

    The New York Times dialect map pinned me, based on my use of language, as a New York City, Paterson, or Yonkers native. I find that extremely interesting because it is true – I spent the last eighteen years of my life in a New Jersey suburb an hour outside of the Big Apple. How did the Times know?
