Sharee DeVose

Gilman International Scholarship Alternate to Costa Rica, 2018

BA Global Studies '19, Honors


Sharee DeVose is a senior majoring in Global Studies with a minor in Spanish. Sharee is a lover of all things with a global theme, particularly cultural diversity, intercultural behavior, and language. She is a writer, editor, and overall language enthusiast. In fall 2018, Sharee will be studying in San José, Costa Rica, and believes that studying abroad will bring a deep level of experiential understanding to her coursework and enhance her Spanish-speaking skills.

During her time in San José, Sharee also anticipates the community service opportunities she will be able to participate in with the International Center for Development Studies. Because she believes that language is a critical component of human and social development, Sharee plans to draw on her experience as a journalist, literacy advisor, and Spanish tutor to develop and teach an English class for local children, teenagers, or adults. By the end of her experience abroad, she hopes that she will have made a positive contribution to the community and be more equipped to pursue careers in global journalism and teaching English as a second language to native Spanish speakers.
