Hi, my name is Riley Rush and I am looking into the SPI study abroad trip to Flamingo Beach, Costa Rica. During this trip, I will be exposed to the different and unique cultures of Costa Rica. I will get a college credit and I will improve my Spanish speaking skills greatly. This trip is not only educational but it includes volunteer work as well. I will stay with a homestay family and get to be involved with children of Costa Rica and their families.With your donations, I will get an opportunity to develop even better leadership skills and get a better understanding of the phrase "don't take your life for granted." The trip costs $3,595 and I would like to exceed the cost and donate the rest to the people in Costa Rica who are not as fortunate as those surrounding me. Thank you for your donations and support in getting me an opportunity of a lifetime.
