Selena Martineau ’19, Elsa Marrian ’21, and Kristine Yang ’21 share a final reflection of a “phenomenal” time in Panama.
After a phenomenal trip in Panama, we reflected over all the joyous moments and learning experiences. This triggered our moments of gratitude inspired by Deerfield’s theme this year.
We are grateful for our parents for allowing us to attend a school that supplies an opportunity to travel to a new country. We are grateful for the CSGC office, the Envoys leaders, Ms. Valk, and Ms. Hemphill for the gelato and guiding us across the country. We are grateful for the group of nine that made the journey unforgettable. We are grateful for Centro Mamoni for welcoming us to their humble home in the spectacular jungle and for inspiring us of passion to better the world. We are grateful for the in-the-field learning opportunities and hands on research. We are grateful for being an unplugged trip that allowed for more authentic interactions.
Most importantly, we are grateful for Panama for welcoming us into their incredible country with extensive landscapes. We hope you enjoyed our blogs! We are excited for a 4 am wake-up call tomorrow, peace out!
