Studying abroad in Costa Rica has been one of the best experiences I have had during my undergraduate studies. Along with learning another language, I received a greater concept of issues, places, and people around the world. The people I met there taught me the meaning of generosity, kindness, and hospitality. Pura Vida (Pure Life) was not just a saying during this trip, but this phrase was a lifestyle where people value experiences and relationships more than materialistic objects. I learned to live life to the fullest and appreciate each new day that I am given. Therefore, I learned the most valuable life lessons of all. Pura Vida!
