Hello Everyone! Being a part of the Costa Rica program is a great privilege I am honored to have. I hope to gain vast knowledge in sustainability from the Costa Rica Program, as I continue to gain a new appreciation for the planet and the resources we have. As an engineering major, I do not learn much about the environment, and this program is a big eye-opener. I am also a member of Global Engineering Brigades, Phi Lambda Rho, and APWA. All of these organizations have helped my development here at UC Irvine.
While in Costa Rica I am looking forward to being outside most of the time, seeing the wildlife that is there, hiking, and simply enjoying the company of the other members of the team. I am also excited to try Costa Rican food and to be able to speak to the natives.
