My service to FIMRC was originally 1 month, but turned into 6. I wanted to actually PRODUCE something tangible and make an impact. Every assignment in my life before that was theory based papers. I created a 6 week teen pregnancy prevention program with the help of Dr. Stedem and Tatiana. I ran the program with 2 different groups. This was a profound experience and I ended up staying in Costa Rica until May 2015 teaching English. I learned to speak Spanish fluently and found my calling, physical therapy, while I was down there.
