UWC Stories

Let our alumni tell you their own stories before, during and after UWC Costa Rica to highlight the diverse experiences and paths that make up our community. Created in conjunction with Andrés Bronnimann '13.

“Durante todo mi tiempo en la iniciativa privada hice cabildeo porque hiciéramos trabajo pro bono. Lo cual en México es de vital importancia. La educación que tuvimos, las experiencias que tuvimos, y las oportunidades sí nos obligan y nos hacen responsables de tener un impacto en el mundo.”
“Costa Rica, and even my career experiences and my overall travel experiences, I can always bet on myself to figure it out because it is only me and this is the life I see for myself and that everything that you want you can get it.”
