I go to school in Portsmouth, NH at The Robert J. Lister Academy, I have a mission to go to Costa Rica! The reason for this mission is first of all I decided to take a class all about Costa Rica and believe me it's no walk in the park on a sunny day. I have to fund raise $1800.00 for myself. I am currently studying tourism for when I get to Costa Rica. Everything about Costa Rica is so amazing to me, I love animals, nature, adventure, and the travel. For myself this trip is a once in a life time chance. The reason the trip is a once in a life time chance for me is because I don't come from a wealthy family at all so it really cuts what I get to do.

This trip could even be life changing to myself as well as others in my class. I have always loved the outdoors and animals so its amazing that I get to do something like this and pursue my dreams. Before this year i have always been a slacker in school, this year really changed me and my teachers really showed me to be mature and do what I want to do. I really want to have more knowledge on the Costa Rican culture, lifestyle, and just live the life of the Costa Rican for 10 days. As of right now we have already started to fund raise by having a car wash, gardening at our school, held a booth at the Stratham fair (and met Gov. John Lynch), we raffled a laptop. If you would like to donate to our class, or to myself please contact my email. mshattuck.student@gmail.com
or you can contact my teach Bryan Mascio at

Thank You so much for taking the time to read my blog. Come back soon!

Chapter 3

About a week ago our whole school went on a hike to Mt. Major. During that hike I just couldn't stop talking or even just thinking about Costa Rica. I was thinking how exhilarating its going to be just because the way Wolf describes this paradise. Not only this chapter but all the chapters so far have me very convinced that Costa Rica is going to be absolutely amazing. My issue is I just need to be able to get enough money to actually experience this. Some people think that were just taking a class, but its so much more than that, this class is a once in a life time chance, maybe even life changing for a lot of people.

I was shocked when i could make a life relation to this chapter because of the fact that I didn't know about zoo's or museums, or movies
