In February, my Spanish class will be going to Nicaragua to help purify water and to gain a deeper understanding of Nicaraguan culture. I am really excited about this trip because it will be my first time going outside of the United States. Not only this but I'm hoping to make a positive difference in others lives. As a class we have been researching Nicaragua and learning about their culture and history. We have also been learning about how we will be helping purify water, using UV lights. I would really enjoy going on this trip, and it would benefit not only my understanding of Spanish but also the world we live in today. I don't want to live the rest of my life knowing that I haven't made a change for the better in our world, and I think this trip is a great opertunity for me to do so.
