Hello, Global Glimpsers and Families! My name is Tania Tapia and I am one of your Global Glimpse Leaders traveling to Costa Rica in a few weeks. I am counting the days – 15 to be exact – ’till I get to meet you all in person. This is my first trip with Global Glimpse, but it will be my second trip to Costa Rica. My favorite memory is the first time seeing a sloth in the wild.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, but I have lived in the Holyoke area for more than 20 years now. I am a teacher in Holyoke and I work with incoming ninth graders. My advice for travel is to stay open to the opportunities and adventures to come!
