I am so excited to leave for Costa Rica!  Although I am usually a little nervous before I arrive at my destination I am happy to be going with such a good group of people.  Everyone has been so kind, and I am so thankful to have gotten a scholarship towards my tuition.  I cannot thank Mr. David Lewis enough for encouraging me to apply.
I am very interested in learning about the culture in Costa Rica as well as seeing the rainforest. It’s hopefully going to be much different than America. Very refreshing! I will keep all of you posted.
