"[My host mom] is actually super woman. She was the best host mother anyone could have asked or hoped for. I am super grateful and blessed to have had her as a host mother. The greatest benefits from this experience was getting out of my comfort zone and taking a leap of faith with living here in Spain. My host mother, my classmates, and the encouragement to travel while being here has been life changing. The biggest challenge has been missing my family, friends, boyfriend, and church community back home. But, it was necessary for me to leave and face these challenges of away from home in order to grow more into the woman I am meant to be!"
