My guest blogger today is one of the mentorSTEM program’s mentors from the US Department of Transportation.  I asked Rhonda to speak out to you about her recent trip to South America because I know you want to be well-traveled and experience the finer things in life.  Check it out!


This is Rhonda Dews Murrill reporting to you from poolside in Leblon, Brazil. I’m having a fantabulous time in South America, sightseeing the Pink House (similar to our White House), touring the burial place of Evita Perron (the cemetery was more like a huge marble city with cobblestone sidewalks), sitting under the stars of Argentina while listening to Sade in concert, riding a tram up a picturesque mountainside in Rio de Janeiro to view one of the new seven wondersEnglish: Statue of Christ the Redeemer, Rio de...

of the world Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer), a 130 foot statue that stands on a mountaintop.

My fabulous vacation included chillin’ in a chaise lounge on a private beach, enjoying delicious native foods while being entertained to performers dancing  the tango, salsa, and samba.  Imagine having a balcony with a view of the ocean, mountains, palm trees, tennis courts, and swimming pools, all at the same time.   Yes, my smart career choices and hard work afforded me this opportunity of a lifetime. Be conscious of how the choices you make now will impact your future.  Hard work will payoff and you too can have a fabulous lifestyle!
