Flight Credit Get a Flight Credit worth up to $500 when you apply with code* by May 5, 2023

Welcome to Costa Rica

I was nervous about my study abroad program. Maybe very nervous about traveling to a new country and living there for four months. Who wouldn't be? The plane ride to Costa Rica was the climax of my anxiety, since I was getting so close to my new home...that I feared may not even feel like home.

But as soon as I stepped into San José, met my homestay parents, met Leo and Maggie at CEA, and entered Veritas for the first time, I completely forgot I was ever nervous! I was so overwhelmed by how "at home" that Veritas and CEA made me feel that I was inspired to make a video about those first few days. The rollercoaster of emotions was exciting, and I couldn't wait to share that excitement through video.

Gabriella Cisneros is the Fall 2015 CEA MOJO in San José, Costa Rica. She is currently a sophomore film student at UW-Milwaukee.
