Up until now, I have not had any previous experience working with any sustainability groups, but I am looking forward to everything that the Costa Rica Program has to offer me. Regardless of my lack of experience, I know that I can contribute hard work, dedication, curiosity, and positivity.
In the short time that I have spent in the Costa Rica Program, I have not only learned a lot about sustainability, but I have also learned about myself in terms of strengths, who I am, and what I stand for. This program has made me question myself a lot, so I hope to gain a better perspective of who I am as a person and what I really want to do in the future by putting myself out of my comfort zone. I have never traveled outside of the country before, so that along with all of the knowledge about sustainability and a different culture will be a gain in itself. I am most looking forward to seeing the animals, nature, and meeting the people there while in country because everything will be completely new to me.
