The days have gone by extremely quickly leading up to tomorrow morning when I will be boarding my flight to Belize! My first course is the Wildlife course at the Belize Zoo and I can’t believe it is finally happening. My clothes are packed, my course readings are downloaded, and now I just need to make sure I wake up early enough to have enough time at the airport tomorrow (assuming I can sleep tonight).
I am beyond excited to finally be going back to Central America. Last time I had went, it was with the science honor society in my high school where we spent spring break in Costa Rica studying sustainable farming. This time I’ll be doing things that I have dreamed of doing for my whole life- working with exotic animals! I am excited for everything – the animals, the people, the cultures, the food. It is a dream come true for me to be able to do these courses and I cannot wait!
