Studying abroad changed my life in ways I could never put into words - I am more confident, outgoing, and have deepened my love for traveling. CISabroad allowed me to learn more about myself in one month than I have in years.
I was thrilled and grateful to learn that I was selected as a recipient of the Rainbow Scholarship and am so excited to show the world my experience in London with CISabroad. As a first generation Mexican-American and a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I was thankful to hear I would receive a scholarship from CISabroad to pursue my academic and professional ventures. I have dreamed of studying abroad since a young age and to make this life-changing experience a reality impacted me profoundly.
The adventures were insane and I couldn't have done them anywhere else besides Costa Rica. And the people I met will forever hold a special place in my heart. I became so close with some students and my housemates, but I also met "Ticos" (Costa Ricans) that it almost broke my heart to leave them.
