Studying abroad was one of the most amazing things I could have ever done. I learned so much about the culture, the food, and the language. I lived with a host family, it was a mother and her daughter and they were so sweet. They helped in any way they could to make my roommate and my stay as welcoming as possible.

I am currently working as an AmeriCorps Vista with a non-profit in Lexington called the South Eastern Medical Interpreters Association (SEMIA). AmeriCorps Vista is basically like the Peace Corps, but to combat domestic poverty. The goal of SEMIA is to provide accessible healthcare to immigrants and non-English speakers, as well as raising awareness for the rights of these individuals.

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.
