My Travel Story

by: Macy Zimnick Start Date: Oct 11, 2016 - End Date: Feb 27, 2017
Hi, I am Macy Zimnick, and I am a freshman studying Business Entrepreneurship at Arizona State University! Since I was a little girl I have dreamed of traveling the world to learn about diverse cultures. To experience the different, enthralling traditions and lifestyles of other countries would be a dream come true. After getting accepted into ASU's study abroad program, I can finally say my lifelong aspiration is well on its way. Once I heard about the opportunity to travel abroad in Costa Rica to study the business of coffee, I immediately knew that this was my chance to explore the world and learn about it. Not only do I get to fulfill my lifelong ambition of touring the globe, I am honored to gain insight into an area of business that will enhance my future career goal. I hope to one day own my own small café and serve quality food and coffee to everyone who enters! This trip will combine these goals to advance my personal and professioal skills. 

In Costa Rica, Starbucks, Café Britt, and Instituto Nacional Del Café will give us academic and company visits! Not only will we have guest lectures, but we will have the opportunity to tour the city, visit museums and theatres, and participate in cooking and dancing classes! I can't imagine a more perfect chance to achieve my goals. 

Lastly, I want to thank you so much for taking your time to even click on my page to read this! While I am extremely excited for this trip, funding is always going to be a stone in the road. I would appreciate and be very thankful if you donated to this great opportunity of mine! No matter how much you give, or if you give anything at all, thank you so, so much for visiting my page. Please feel free to share my link to others so I can more easily finance this trip. Thank you!
