Background

Minor: Writing

Age: 19

Career Goal: I'm not sure yet.

City, Country, School name: Universidad Veritas in San Jose, Costa Rica

Why did you choose this location? I've always wanted to study abroad, and I thought it would be cool to live in a Spanish-speaking country and improve my language skills. I visited Costa Rica for a short mission trip in high school, and I'm excited for the opportunity to go back! 

What are you most excited to do while abroad? So many things. I'm excited to learn a different language, meet new people, experience a foreign culture, and to grow by stepping outside of the things I'm used to. I'm also looking forward to spending some time in the jungle, at the beach, near volcanos, and enjoying the beauty of the country.

 What is your favorite item from home that you are bringing? A journal, to document everything I'm going to experience.
