Costa Rica Mission Trip 2018

Hello everyone! This post is going to be the start of a very important event happening in my life. A couple months ago, I and 30 other youth group members were offered by my church to travel to Nuevo Arenal, Costa Rica to help a children’s VBS, build different construction projects, etc. I actually visited Costa Rice when I was nine years old.  Deathly afraid of planes, and unaware of the beauty that lay before me, I was amazed to see the whole country full of beautiful and lush flowers, teeming with wildlife. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined not only going back, but to help the place that gave me so many amazing memories. All of it in the name of God. As amazing and heartwarming as it sounds, the journey there won’t be easy. The trip in total costs $1,400, which will go to not only my flight, meals, and lodging, but will also go to VBS supplies and construction materials. My goal for myself is to raise all the money by fundraising to avoid having my family pay out of pocket, as they have my brother’s medical bills to worry about. I intend to raise this by creating a Gofundme account, pairing with a dear friend to create T-shirts to sell, and helping out with church functions. Overall, besides helping others, I feel like it will strengthen my faith in Christ, and will of course give me the opportunity to travel and experience new things.

PS!!!! If any of you are potentially interested in buying our shirts, stay tuned to my Instagram, as I will disclose any upcoming information I have. As always, thank you for reading, DM or email me if you have any questions!

Hello! My name is Emma, and I am pleased to welcome you to my blog, established in June of 2016 (which was a journey in itself). This blog has been the product of creativity, love, and countless hours designing and redesigning. A little about me: I am a graduated senior, coming from my community college's Early College Program, which entailed me receiving my AA degree after I graduated high school! In my high school career, I had been Captain for four years on the girl's JV and varsity volleyball team, became Vice President of our chapter of Technology Student Association, Historian of both the National Honor Society and Science National Honor Society, and received Gold and Silver Keys for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for my photography. Outside of school, I was involved in my local youth groups for seven years (four mission trips down!), had the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC to attend the Washington Journalism and Media conference, and work at an independent living elderly home. In February 2019, I got accepted to the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and look forward to spending my next four years learning about business and journalism. I play guitar, write, and take/edit pictures in my free time, and absolutely love spending quality time with my friends and family. This is a place where I can talk about a variety of topics, from lifestyle, to faith, fashion, and personal subjects. What's in a name? That, my friends, is an easy answer. I have always been quite observant, and in recent years, especially within myself. Introspective means to be "inward-looking," and for me, that's just the simple truth. For this blog, it allows you a glimpse into everything and anything I come across, whether it be about life, fashion, or travel! This is the place to feel included. Caio! -Em
