Claire Hammer I came to Costa Rica with ACM with limited Spanish, directionless in my career path, and knowing no one. Leaving three months later, I was almost fluent, I had direction in my life, and a handful of lifetime friends and experiences. The ACM Costa Rica program changed my life in ways that I hoped it would, and ways that I never expected.

—Claire Hammer, Costa Rica, Fall 2008
