During my time in Costa Rica, I had the opportunity to engage in community service through sustainability projects, such as recycling, forest up-keep, and planting. The community's involvement and dedication to maintain the environment has inspired me to adopt similar practices here, in the United States. I understand that even small acts, such as collecting cans for reuse, can assist in sustaining the planet. I wish to have a similar impact, as the communities in Costa Rica have had on me, to inspire others to be mindful of our environmental choices. Much thanks to LCAE for facilitating such a fun and informing trip!
