I’ve always wanted to travel to Central America to experience the culture, diversity, and beauty that the countries have to offer. This trip to Panama marks my first time traveling to Central America, and I am overjoyed to be able to have this opportunity. I want to ensure that I take the time to truly immerse myself in the culture and see the world from Panamanians’ perspectives during this week-long adventure. An important part of achieving this goal is understanding the environmental problems that Panama faces. I have always been passionate about the environment, so I am excited to be able to focus on mangrove restoration and sustainability by working for Wetlands International.
