  • Dear Global Edcuation Office,

    Hola desde España! Spain was an amazing place to spend the 2016 summer! It was incredible to learn about the culture and vast history of Spain as well as the  beautiful landscape and architecture. From the bustling streets of Madrid to the beautiful quiet mountains of Asturias Spain captivates the imagination of students. However, the highlight of my trip was interacting with my host family on a daily basis and understanding how our daily lives differ. I enjoyed speaking with the locals and the opportunity to improve my fluency. I hope it will benefit me in my future interactions with Spanish speaking individuals and allow me to volunteer or do research in a Spanish speaking hospital in the future. 

    Hasta Luego!
