I am Tope and I am a 2nd year Criminology Law & Society major. I am an avid reader, self- proclaimed photographer and an adventurer. Throughout my life I’ve had the opportunity to live in countries where certain resources are scarce to the majority of the people who inhabit the area. I am aware of the value of resources and how easily we take certain things for granted. It is primarily because of this that I have a strong interest in sustainability, which for me simply means to empower people and value nature. I hope to gain a renewed appreciation for the environment. I’m looking forward to learning more about how a complex society, like Costa Rica, can attain sustainable living and hopefully implement that into my own life so that I can inform others. I’m also deeply interested in learning about the culture and customs of Costa Rican locals, and how these individuals identify themselves and how they practice their traditions, values and beliefs. I hope to contribute creativity and open-mindedness to the team. I’m always looking for a new adventure, and I firmly believe that the best days are ahead.
