Hello. My name is Brittney. I am a seventeen-year old student attending the Robert J. Lister Academy. When my teacher, Bryan, introduced this Costa Rica class to us I was very excited and wanted to go. Then we got to see how the class would be orientated and it looked very difficult but I still wanted to join the class. Now that I am in the class I am willing to do my hardest with the work we have to accomplish and get my fellow classmates and I to go to Costa Rica. This will be a long and challenging course but I am willing to strive to achieve this goal.

The reasons why this is such a big deal for me is because I've never been out of the United States and I think that it would give me knowledge to other cultures outside of the United States. Another reason this is such a big deal to me is because I get to enjoy the reward of success. I know what kind of hard work it's going to be and when I get on the plane to go to Costa Rica I will have been able to see how much I have accomplished. The last reason why this is such a big deal to me is because I have never had an experience like this where it was with a school that counted as class and I find that to be very appealing on a college or job application that I was able to go out of the country. When I get ready to begin the college application process I want to be seen as someone that is committed to life long learning, exciting experiences and successful future. This is what I think this trip can give me. If you would like to support me, our efforts, or our class, please send a check made payable to the Robert J.

~Today is the Day~ YAY!!!!

I can't sleep right now and I felt like blogging! I will be driving to my school in a few hours to meet up with my peers and staff members so that we can drive to the airport together. I am getting so anxious but excited.I don't want to leave my family behind but I really want to be in Costa Rica now! Also I would like to give a shout out to my mother, Tammy and step father, Charlie. I will miss you both so much and can't wait until I see you again! I love you. Just for the information, I will be blogging once a day while in Costa Rica telling everyone about our adventures that day and what an experience it was or I will be blogging about what we are planning to do for the day. I will definitely keep everyone updated!
