For my capstone, I documented my first abroad experience to Costa Rica this past summer. I was granted a scholarship by the non-profit organization The Wandering Scholar, which was founded in Philadelphia. They assist high school students who can't otherwise travel abroad to enjoy the experience, either with a host family or a travel group. For 10 days my group and I were in Osa, and for half the time we were on a reserve with experienced marine biologists assisting them with their students, while the other half was spent in a luxury hotel. Throughout my duration I filmed just about everything- our travels between locations, events we hosted, beach clean ups, downtime, etc. Upon my return I put together a blog documenting the pictures and videos as well as journals and reflection posts. I learned a lot about Costa Rican culture such as traditional food, more about the language, dance styles and etiquette.

I am pleased to share with you all my progress on my senior Capstone 2018 here at Science Leadership Academy. I had a clear idea heading into senior year that this would be the year I finally find out if music is my path. I know many of my friends appreciate my skills musically. It was very important of me to learn more of the technical side of music. In my senior capstone, I decided my theme would be, researching what it means to become a part of the music industry. D=These past several months have consisted of making a studio, writing lyrics, and talking to music producers, all before actually recording my own 6 song EP of self produced music. I learned that in 2018 it is not hard at all to become a soundcloud rapper or rapper in general. The term soundcloud rapper is not an insult nor compliment. I believe it to just be a pro noun for me making music on soundcloud.
From doing my capstone I have learned alot of important things about myself my community and ways that I can go above and beyond to help other people who dont hve the nessecry tools availbel to help themselves.I am proud of what I was bale to be an asset to my community through assisting in raising school spirit and being able to help the less fortunate be able to get to a more rfijned place in their lives.First I did alot of research to get a feel of wht is actually feesable.I decided to partner with SLA CC SPIRIT Commitee to bring fun events to the students of SLA for a small fee which a piece of would go twoards aidning people in need or bringing awareness to the community about what is going on and exactly how they can help.The final product of my capstone was a relly humbling and eye opening experience that I am proud to have been able to do.Being able to help bring someone to a homeless rehibilation center from where they previoulsy were mkes me really proud to be able to do.I have lerned that it does only take 1 person to truly make a difference within the community and be able to be an example of an upstanding communty member which at the end of the day is what I and what everyone should aspire to be.
