This week I have been working on my application to Mobility International USA’s Costa Rica Exchange . Mobility International USA is an organization that enables people to travel around the world to learn about disability rights at an international level. If I get accepted on this 16 day adventure to Costa Rica, I would be a part of a group of 12 that would travel to Costa Rica. We would learn about disability rights, stay with a host family, attend disability workshops, work on a volunteer project, and explore Costa Rica. This sounds like a wonderful opportunity for me and I'm very excited. Hopefully, I'll get accepted. I'll find out at the beginning of April.
Although I am excited about the possibility of this adventure, there's a part of me that's very nervous. This would be the first time in my life I would be away from my parents for an extended period of time. I've started the process of looking for a caregiver. I want to find just the right person to accompany me to Costa Rica.
