february project preview: globe aware in costa rica

Wow. I cannot believe that I've already completed eight volunteer projects. I just returned from volunteering in Guatemala at AWARE Animal Rescue (a blog post coming ASAP) where I managed to fall hard and fast in love with a 5-month old puppy, which I adopted and named Manita ("Little Sister" in Spanish slang).

Next month, I'll head to Costa Rica to volunteer with Globe Aware with the grant I won via Travelocity's Travel for Good Program. Read more about what I'll be doing here:

Thank you again for helping to make this year of service happen. It's been more challenging than I ever imagined at times, but humbling, inspiring and fulfilling in more ways than I can even begin to articulate. I am grateful every day for this experience and opportunity and could not have done it without you. So thank you.
