What did you do this summer?
September 10, 2010
This past July, Ambassador Girl Scout Bryna Shuman went on a two-week "Student Ambassador" trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. The two weeks were jammed packed with fun and exciting learning experiences. She got to mingle with the famous Galapagos tortoises, snorkel with sea lions and sharks off the coast of the Galapagos, wander the streets of Quito, the capital city, hike through the Amazon Rainforest, and even spend a day planting balsa trees with local school children. It was an amazing experience, and one that she will never forget!
