Hi, my name is Isabella. I'm currently 13 years old and I was born in Simi Valley, California, on January 18, 2004. My family and I moved to Fort Collins, Colorado, when I was 3 years old. I currently go to Lincoln IB Middle School. I'm in 7th grade and in my 7th grade experience I did a service learning trip to Costa Rica with fellow classmates and teachers. The trip was the best experience of my life. I got to get to know the teachers and students in ways I could have never gotten to know them at school. I feel this trip changed me in very positive ways. I now am very good friends with all the kids that went on the trip. I'm very grateful for everything I have, no matter what it is because I know not everyone has what I do. I have a good life and am very grateful for it. Since returning, I have noticed that I have focused more on school and not on my social life but still maintain a good social life. Thank you to those who made this trip possible for me. I am very grateful for this experience.
