Paul Appel Looking back, I have realized that my time in Costa Rica was less about learning the language and more about building strong relationships. It is not that we did not learn lots of Spanish (oh boy, did we ever!), but the people I met in Costa Rica will leave an impression on me that will last forever. I met many great people, some of whom I now call good friends. ACM Costa Rica made me more confident in my abilities, and gave me valuable insight into my future. It also gave me a new family and a place that I have no problem with calling "home."

—Paul Appel, Costa Rica, Fall 2009
