My time here in Mexico has been extremely incredible because of the people. I have made so many friends because people are always willing to talk to you and get to know you. It makes me feel right at home because of the friendly culture and atmosphere. I’ve made many friends with foreign exchange students, as well as Mexican students, and I have tried to get more involved on campus. I am a part of the Chocolate Mexicano club, where we converse with Mexican students in Spanish to improve our speaking skills; we also hang out and learn more about Mexican culture during our sessions. I also do Cross Fit with my friends, and I am apart of Tandem, a foreign exchange mentoring program where we are paired with a Mexican student. I love all of the interacts I have with my friends because they are very meaningful. I’ve even gotten close to my friend Erika and got to spend the weekend with her family. Her family treated me like their own, and It was extremely fun getting to observe the Mexican family dynamic. I’m loving every moment here!
