1. How has your study abroad experience impacted your life, academics, and/or future career goals?

My study abroad experience has impacted my academics greatly. I am a Spanish major so going to Costa Rica, being immersed into the culture, being forced to speak the language, and taking Spanish classes all helped me speak and understand the language tremendously. I had struggled at my home university in my Spanish classes because I did not comprehend the information, and I could speak little to no Spanish. However, after my study abroad experience, I am doing extremely well in my Spanish classes and communicating much better in the language.

2. What was your favorite class abroad?

My favorite class by far had to be my Cultural Photography class. My professor took us on many mini field trips in and around San Jose. I enjoyed that because not only were we seeing the culture of Costa Rica but we were able to photograph all the incredible things our professor showed us. Whichever technique we were discussing that week was the technique we were to practice while taking the pictures on the trips, so combining traveling and photography was a great treat for me.
