Today I am anxiously preparing for my first ASB trip, which is to Costa Rica to participate and learn about sea turtle conservation. I am also really looking forward to immersing into the community and learning more about the people who are around us. My group is incredibly amazing and I am looking forward to getting to know them better, and I am anticipating knowing them well as we will all be staying in the same room for 10 days. I am excited about the free time we have to explore and learn more about the Costa Rican community. I am so grateful for this opportunity and will make sure to write about each of my days in my journal to keep these memories forever.
