"Everything in the orientation was SUPER helpful. It was a little long, but I felt really ready for the semester! Also, I felt in really great hands with all three of the directors, especially Edu who was always sending out fun things to do and weekly emails. She made my time here even more enjoyable always talking to me about everything that was going on in school, at home, and in life. [My host family], other than my AMAZING roommate, were hands down the best part of my experience. I feel like I am really their daughter, and I can't wait to be able to share more of my life with them even when I am in the states. If everyone could experience their love, it wouldn't be enough. 10/10! Overall, this experience has molded me into a whole new person. I am so blessed to be the person I am today, and I could not be that person without this experience. The things I learned here will, no doubt, follow me through my whole life."
