Jared Lopez Morales
Hello, my name is Jared Lopez Morales. I am 12 years old and I live in Fort Collins, Colorado. I am the youngest in my family. The favorite thing to do in my free time is to go outside and play soccer. When we went to a school in Costa Rica for a service project, the students went outside and played soccer. I was so excited to play with them. It was really fun. Also, on this trip I met new people from my own school. It was a lot of fun to make new friends while traveling in a new country. All of us really liked the food there, too. I also liked helping people with anything. Sometimes it was difficult to be away from my family. This was the first time I had ever gone far away from home. Luckily I had my friends next to me; they helped me when I got homesick. Overall, though, it was the best trip I have ever been on.
