In the words of LIVFund Scholarship applicant Kayla Oliver, studying abroad in Costa Rica means…
Culture. The people, the places, the food – all things unknown to me, but that I cannot wait to experience.
Opportunity. I had never dreamed of traveling, this is a chance of a lifetime, and one that will help me grow as a person.
Splendor. The beauty in the country and within the peoples’ hearts. There is so much to discover.
Teachings. Lessons to be learned about language…and life.
Alajela. The exciting town I will hopefully get the chance to stay in this summer.
Rich. In history, language, and culture.
Indigenous. A chance to visit an indigenous reservation in Costa Rica, a unique, enlightening experience.
Coexist. A chance to live with a Costa Rican host family and become enveloped in the culture.
