CEA CAPA Directory
Alyssa Tsing, Content Creator - Videographer
What is something you're passionate and excited about? (hobbies, interests, causes, etc.)
I'm looking forward to meeting other study abroad students and natives. I love meeting new people and hanging out, so making friends in a different country excites me the most.
What class are you most looking forward to taking while studying abroad?
I'm most looking forward to taking Spanish classes while abroad. My Spanish is very bad, even after multiple attempts at learning. However, by being in an immersive environment abroad, I believe I'll learn Spanish in San José quickly and efficiently.
What is one new experience you're hoping to have while abroad?
I'm eager to experience Costa Rica's food, culture, and music. I'm also intrigued by Costa Rica's "pura vida" lifestyle. Pura vida is about living a simple life, opposite of the U.S's hurried lifestyle.
why did you choose to study or intern abroad? and why did you choose your destination?
Costa Rica was the only option for students in my program. However, even with this limited option, this study abroad opportunity is what led me to decide on my university. I love the tropical climate and am thrilled to study in an immersive environment.
