It was in my final semester in Summer 2018 where I had the opportunity to finish my college degrees in San Jose, Costa Rica. It was my first experience abroad, and the ultimate “final test” of everything that Spanish had taught me. During that experience,I gained more confidence in myself, in my ability to speak the language, and realizing that there is a future for me in the world of translation and interpretation.
