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

Chapters 13,14, and 15


Chapter 13
Wolf was born into a very loving family, raised with the privileges of having options. His family is also very supportive in the decisions he makes, weather they are right or wrong. It seems like Wolf's family all around is accepting, loving, supportive, and strong. I can relate to this chapter because my family is also very loving, supportive even if my decisions aren't the best, i do have the option to make my own decisions, my family is accepting of everyone not just people that are in the family. The Shattuck's and the Gibb's are a very strong family and no one will ever break us down!
Chapter 14
Wolf and Lucky decided to move to Costa Rica, they figured it would be much better for their children. When wolf and Lucky moved they did have to make the decision to leave a lot behind, which they did. While in Costa Rica they went through some minor setbacks but nothing extreme. The decision they made was the best for their sons. Because wolf and Lucky decided to move to Costa Rica their sons didn't have to make the same choices Wolf and his friends made about the military conscription.

Chapter 15
The conditions that Wolf and everyone went through just to look at the beautiful scenery. They would get drenched in water just to walk the trails and keep them clear.But despite the miserable conditions and possible dangers the guards still manage to maintain a steady chorus of laughter and gossip. As they cook their meals in the dark not paying any attention to their wet clothes and tired bodies. These people left their comfortable beds,houses, and families behind to maintain and manage the forest.
