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!

I got my passport finally! I am so excited to have the passport in my hand and I can actually say "I am going to Costa Rica!" The feeling that I keep getting when I think about the trip is kind of over whelming but it feels good to do something that could be once in a life time as well. The fact that I am getting the chance to do something that I would not have been able to do if it was not for my school is just amazing, the feeling is almost unreal because our school goes above and beyond for us as you can see. Its weird to think that in 3 months were actually getting on a plane and flying to San Jose and doing what we've been planning since last summer! We have done so much and we have come so far. We have officially purchased our plane tickets! Its amazing its OFFICIAL!! Walking with wolf is becoming more and more real!
