Thank you BCA!

I just want to express my sincere gratitude for helping me get to Ecuador — this has truly been a life-changing experience. My Spanish has improved by leaps and bounds, and I’ve made countless friends. I’ve fallen in love with this amazing country, and I have a much better idea of my career path. Thank you so much for the BCA Scholarship!
