This program helped me determine if I would want to have an international career. After the visit abroad, I know that I would want to work internationally, not necessarily abroad my entire life, but definitely for a few years in another country.
I loved being able to see so many facets of business and government jobs in Costa Rica. I also loved our teachers: Lindsay, Julie, and David. They were great leaders and really balanced each other out.
My favorite part of this program was the group atmosphere that felt like a family. We were able to truly understand and work with students from different majors. Having this experience broadened my perspective and created great memories.
