My name is Liz Alfaro and I am one of the GGLs who will be traveling with you to Costa Rica. I am beyond excited to learn about Costa Rica with you all. Can you believe it is finally here?
So a little about me. I really enjoy traveling, eating with my friends, watching Star Wars (never gets old), and watching my Dodgers play. I am originally from Los Angeles, CA and made the decision to make Chicago my home 14 years ago. Best decision ever! It has brought me so many opportunities like being a part of Global Glimpse. I am the Counseling Clerk/College Advisor at Westinghouse College Prep in the East Garfield Park neighborhood and when my colleague said she needed someone to sponsor Global Glimpse with her, I didn’t hesitate to sign up! Global Glimpse combines my two biggest passions in life, education and traveling. I have never traveled with students before but I look forward to getting to know each Glimpser on our trip and exploring Costa Rica together 🙂. Especially the food!
As we prepare for our trip, I highly recommend bringing the following:
- Your passport (which will easily become your most prized possession after this trip)
- Sunscreen and bug spray
- Water bottle (we are staying hydrated)
- Whatever our packing lists say
- And of course, an open heart and mind
See you all at the airport!
