Meeting the students and teachers were the most rewarding parts of the program. If I were to ever visit another country on my own, I know that I would never get an experience like that. It was so valuable learning from other students.
Elements of the program that I found most rewarding were the first-hand interactions and exposure to life in Costa Rica. Touring schools and talking to staff members was an amazing opportunity to see what the school systems are like in Costa Rica.
My favorite part was getting to go abroad with a group of people I didn't know and have new experiences with them. It was awesome learning about an education in another country. It was amazing to go to different schools and meet students from Costa Rica.
