My name is Rene Antillon and I'm a member of the 2016 Lincoln Costa Rica trip. The Costa Rica trip really inspired me: When I grow up I’m going to travel a lot and try new things. This trip really helped me get comfortable with all of my friends who came on the trip. Also I learned how it feels to visit another country that is not as developed as the United States. It was my first experience being away from home for a while. I really stepped out of my comfort zone. I hope I can do more trips like this in the future because although this trip was really fun, I missed my family a lot being really far away from home. This taught me a lot about myself and how I want to become more independent.
