I wrote my first journal when I was 7 years old. I kept it during the year that my family traveled through the United States. My parents just brought it to me this past weekend. It made me laugh because the first entry actually shows how little I've changed since then. The first thing I wrote in my journal was:
"I am a Panamanian. We left today."
Being from Panama and always "leaving" are two major themes in my life. So little has changed.
