Hello my Veronica Lopez. I am a current student at College of DuPage and I am studying photography. I am from Wheaton, IL and in 3 1/2 weeks I will be studying abroad in Costa Rica thanks to the Fund for Education Abroad for this once-in a-lifetime experience. During my stay in San Jose, Costa Rica I will be studying Spanish 2 and Civilization at the Costa Rican Language Academy. Everything that we will learn will be in Spanish which will help me in my Spanish speaking as well as my writing. We will explore Costa Rica, by visiting  the volcanos, waterfalls and the national parks. We will also go to the Turtle Island which I’m looking forward to expand in my photography. This will be my first time traveling outside of the U.S. I will post pictures and videos of my study-abroad-experience in Costa Rica to the world.
