My Travel Story

by: MIKAELA MATHEWS Start Date: Nov 13, 2017 - End Date: Mar 12, 2018
Travelling abroad to other countries has always been a huge dream of mine. I originally wanted to travel to Madrid, Spain during the summer of 2017, but due to insufficient funds, I was unable to make the trip. Here I am yet again, trying to raise money and go abroad in summer of 2018. I will not let anything stop me from making this trip. I am trying my best to do any and everything I can to go abroad as I approach my senior year in undergrad. Two professors from the Foreign Language Department of my university will be taking a group of undergraduate students to Heredia, Costa Rica. Everyone within the study abroad group will be staying with a host family in the summer of 2018 all while taking 6 credit hours (2 classes) at a local university. My university has partnered with a university in Costa Rica to give us a "feeling of home" experience during our stay. Not only will I be in classes and improving my spanish speaking skills, my university has several excursions planned out for us to explore the history and culture that Heredia, Costa Rica has to offer ! .

Yo estudio español y psicología en la universidad de west georgia. Después de me graduá, yo quiero regresar a la escuela para estudiar enfermería. Yo quiero estudiar en el extranjero porque me encantaría trabajar estrechamente con la cultura española. Aunque el idioma es diferente en todos los países de habla hispana, aún será útil. Esto ayudará a mi carrera porque puedo hablar con mis pacientes en español. Me apasiona esto porque siempre he querido viajar fuera del país y trabajar con otros lenguas. Ir a Costa Rica ayudará.
