Academic Achievers Tour
I really enjoyed times square and 5th avenue since it is very iconic and famous. But what stood out the most for me about New York was the 9/11 memorial and museum.
When I first heard about it when I was small I didn’t really understand the tragedy the people of New York City went through that day. The museum made me think about it differently and made me see things in a new way and to be more grateful about what we have.
It felt like a honor to read the names of the victims by the waterfalls and to hear and see their stories in the museum.
