Volunteering in Costa Rica meant a lot to me and opened my eyes to the world.
A group of students (including myself obviously) traveled to Costa Rica with numerous hockey bags filled with school supplies! We brought pencils, colouring books, posters, erasers, sharpeners, crayons, books, etc on a long 6.5 hour flight and 1 lay over to a remote community in Costa Rica called Monte Verde.
It was very exciting to see the children’s faces when we arrived with all of these goodies!
Going to Costa Rica was the first time traveling alone (without family) and was very adventurous.
