I have lived my life relying on what others could do for me. I have never been able to complete a challenge on my own. Going to Costa Rica is my challenge and I am dedicated to complete that challenge. The challenge to me is working hard to earn what I need. The Costa Rica class as a whole needs to raise 15,000 dollars in order to go. With the hard work and dedication that I am willing to offer I am proud to say there is no doubt in my mind that we will reach this goal. The one thing that stands out to me the most about wanting to experience Costa Rica is the culture. It has been one of my dreams to go out of the country and experience their culture and relate it to mine. When I say culture I mean their difference of style of living compared to mine as in, food, housing, clothes, and environment. So I cant wait to explore and see what Costa Rica has in store for me!

  These are all of the places we will be staying at while in Costa Rica! I am very excited to visit each one and learn more about them. But most of all I am looking forward to visiting Guanacaste. My research project is about the coast, so it will be very interesting for me. Arenal is going to be fun considering I have never seen a volcano before. Monteverde is where we are staying for most of the time. The book we had read as a class Walking With Wolf was based in Monteverde so that is why we are staying there the longest. I just can not wait to get there and do fun things with my class mates and just have an amazing expierence.
