Costa Rican Humblings – Part 1
My name is Nour Daoud, and I am a fourth semester Social Service Worker (SSW) student, at Centennial College. I am currently in Costa Rica, completing my final placement. Since I am very interested in a future career doing international work, I have opted to complete an international internship, as I thought it was suitable for me. I have been humbled and challenged more than I can describe to you in words. So I thought I’d spare you my boring personal reflection, and just show you why. Please bear with me as this is my first blogging experience ever, and I hope you enjoy it!
The Basílica de Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles. How Majestic!
View from a public park!

Ruins that were not completed.
Other ruins literally right in the middle of the city!
Time to eat!
Oh, just casually standing on top of A VOLCANO!
With the clouds!
Most beautiful lagoon in the middle of the volcano
Just casually holding a baby gator
Took a night hike to look for this beauty

Never be afraid to take a risk, or be pushed out of your comfort zone. You never know what you’ll discover about yourself!
Till my next post….PURA VIDA (if you ever visit CR, you must learn this expression)!!!
Ciao mis amigos 🙂
