What was the moment when you decided to stay for a second year with BECA?
As soon as I set foot in Honduras, I fell in love, and I’m sure that my decision to stay for a second year surprised none of my friends and family from home.
How did you first get involved with BECA?
How did you find out about BECA? What did your friends and family think when you told them you were moving to Honduras?
Every year around this time, I think back to my first day as a BECA teacher and then to the amazing experience I shared with my teammates in Honduras. For the next few weeks, it’s nothing but flashbacks of excitement and fun memories, and a sense of warm community that BECA has instilled.
