Climate Change Mitigation

Authored By:

Ellie Bergstrom

When applying for the Monteverde, Costa Rica CIEE program, I did so hoping I would learn more about climate change mitigation. During these past two weeks in Monteverde, I learned the importance of friendships. I have met so many amazing and intelligent people, and have created lifetime bonds with other high schoolers from completely different states. Through nature-oriented hikes, basketball, and more, I have gotten to learn so much about my peers. 

While it may seem ironic, I value the friendships I made just as much as the class material!
