Mychal Garcia

USAC Program Assistant

Mychal Garcia is senior who is double majoring in Spanish and Latin American Studies. She spent the 2012-2013 school year in Heredia, Costa Rica, and it was the most amazing experience of her life. Upon leaving for Costa Rica, she was nervous about staying a whole year instead of only one semester, but by the end of her journey she realized it was the best decision she ever could have made. During her time abroad she was able to visit other countries such as Nicaragua, Panama, and Cuba. She also traveled to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, hung out with monkeys and sloths, zip-lined through the rain forest, boarded down the side of an active volcano, tried many delicious new foods, slept under the stars, went surfing, and met some amazing people who will be life-long friends. Now, everyday her mind constantly wanders to her second home, all the wonderful memories she had, and how badly she wants to return. She is very passionate about her experience in Costa Rica and is excited to be able to share and help others follow their dreams of studying abroad. As a Program Assistant, she is hoping to encourage as many people as possible to travel and see what the world has to offer. If she had to give someone advice who was thinking of possibly studying abroad, she would tell them not to hesitate and do not be afraid. It will be the best experience of your life and you will never regret it! Pura Vida
