Alumna of the Week: Gisella


Costa Rica

Gisella Arias-Olson comes from Costa Rica, and now lives in Eagan, MN. She works as a Mental Health Case Manager, and she's pursuing a master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.

"I studied at GLI from September 2014 to November 2015, and what I most remember from GLI is the warm environment. The teachers and the administrative staff are committed to students and their learning. GLI gave me not just the tools to master English language but it also gave me a future, they gave me confidence in myself."'


Gisella's advice to anybody learning English is, "be on time, do your homework, ask questions, believe in yourself and dream big, you can do it!"
