“CSA is what ‘it’ is all about to me. I love introducing new cultures to people and it gives me particular pleasure to experience being with those who are visiting Europe for the frst time. I consider myself fortunate because I get to know participants prior to departure (from working at the CSA Home Ofce) then watch them undergo this delightful eye-opening type of transformation while abroad. CSA has a wonderful Staf of teachers, instructors and guides on our European Summer Study Program in Salzburg, Austria,… and all of us are totally into what we do!” says Sonya.
