CEA CAPA Directory
California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo
Sydney McCarter, Alumni Ambassador
IF YOU COULD PICK ANOTHER CEA CAPA PROGRAM (BESIDES YOURS) WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
I chose to go to Sevilla, Spain to solidify my Spanish speaking abilities, and as badly as I'd want to choose another study abroad program in Spain, I'd pick Argentina or Costa Rica. I had the opportunity to visit both of these breathtaking countries with my family but never got a chance to dive into the culture and lifestyle.
what's one story or important aspect you always tell people from your time abroad?
It's a privilege to get the chance to understand and immerse yourself into another culture and lifestyle. Very few people have the opportunity to do that in their lifetime and it contributes so greatly to the person you want to become and your ability to create a home for yourself as you move throughout life. If you allow yourself to thrive and lean into the experience of studying abroad, you'll feel confident navigating life amidst discomfort and uncertainty.
