I am a student eager to get immersed in the Chilean Culture and enticed by the idea of being fluent in Spanish. I am minoring in Sustainability Leadership and this minor led me to an immersive study experience in Costa Rica where I came face to face with the Fer-De-Lance (the world's 3rd deadliest snake). I am an exercise enthusiast and will definitely look for an excuse to walk to places rather than finding transportation. At the moment, I am going through a lot of changes in my life, from choosing to change my entire cultural setting and learning a new language, to being a vegetarian.
As odd as it might be, I am looking forward to the sense of discomfort of being in a new country. I am scared for the moments when all the Spanish I know will suddenly fly out of the window, but I really want to find out how I will tackle these difficult situations and how I will communicate even when it might like an out of body experience.
