- Youth Exchange
- Become a leader
This is not my first youth exchange but it is safe to say that this one of my favorites. It was an unique learning experience and a great opportunity for me to learn a lot about leadership, travel to Latin America and to meet new people from different sides of the world. In my opinion, the diversity was the sparkle that made this exchange special, unforgettable.
Each day, was different from the previous one, each day was better. The sessions were really productive and interactive, we were learning while having a fun. Also, a big attention was pointed on the cultural aspect, so we had an opportunity to share our, but also to learn about the other cultures, try typical Costa Rican food and explore a little bit the country. I learned a lot facts about Costa Rica that I never knew before: that it is the happiest country in the world, about ,,Pura Vida”, that it is the biggest exporter of bananas etc.
I felt like I left a part of my heart there, next to the ocean but I left Costa Rica with an amazing memories that we created with even more amazing people, and super motivated to work on the realization of my action plan. I didn’t said ,,goodbye” to the people and to the country, just ,,see you soon” .
