"Our house received substantial damage from Hurricane Sandy, and we’ve had to move into a rental house. Finances have been tight, and on top of that, last semester was one of the toughest I’ve had so far during my time in college. For Christmas, my parents surprised me with a trip to Disney World with one of my friends. I know we don’t have the extra money right now, but they somehow managed to send me to one of my favorite places on earth. It means more to me than they probably ever know."
