Spanish Education Trip

Hello! Hola! My name is Isabelle Pala and I am thirteen years old. Ethnically, I am partly Spanish. I've grown up in America and unfortunately haven't been exposed to the language and culture until last year. Since I am in eighth grade and high school is just around the corner, my education is at its peak. This year, my school is organizing a trip for Spanish language students to go to Costa Rica for spring break and engage in conversations with the people of the country. I would love, more than anything, to be included in this learning adventure. I think going to Costa Rica will increase my comprehension of the language and awareness of another Spanish culture. Another benefit would be learning about nature of a leader in environmental protection. I am also particularly interested in learning about environmental science and wild animals. I'm hoping this trip will expose me to so much more than I have been previously. The overall trip fee includes plane tickets, hotel stays, outdoor excursions like visiting a tropical rainforest, food --that will also expose me to the culture of Costa Rica-- and so much more. I would appreciate your help to make this dream come true and make my education flourish.

Shannon Crownover, my mom, is listed as the "on behalf of" for this fundraiser since I'm not yet 18 and don't have a bank account. She is paying the school tour group for my trip. Thank you! Gracias!
