~ Bella '22

It has always been very hard for me to step out of my comfort zone, and this experience has proven that as a bigger challenge than I would have expected. One thing I can say for certain is this program has taught me so much about the world, Spanish, Costa Rica, and myself. Since I started at Proctor, I have thought about how my shell was like concrete, and Proctor has helped me break out, one experience at a time. My term in Costa Rica didn’t just help me put a crack in my shell, but more of a hole!
