I Learned to Appreciate My Country, Culture

May 19, 2006

The two years (1998-2000) I spent working with the unorthodox yet fascinating Tico Times team have left a lasting impact both on my professional and personal lives.

One major thing I learned during my TT adventure was to appreciate my incredibly diverse country and culture in ways I hadn t done before. Traveling to every possible corner of the land and meeting all sorts of people living in so many different circumstances allowed me to see, understand and experience in a whole new way. This I have taken with me everywhere I ve been since.

Gracias!
