My time in Costa Rica has come to constitute much more than just the semester I was there. I created strong bonds with the people, the country, and the Spanish language to such an extent that they still affect my daily life. I learned a great deal about myself, my passions, and my limits. From the many ACM excursions, to a day in with my host family, to an unforeseen hour-long conversation with my taxi driver, I found myself inquiring, discovering, and growing. While I continue to keep in touch with my host families, my hope is to return soon with fellow ACM classmates to rekindle old relationships and generate new ones. Ultimately, committing to a semester in Costa Rica was one of the most invaluable experiences of my life, and I never could have predicted or anticipated its lasting impact on my life and myself.
