Hola! I am extremely excited to be able to say that one of my greatest dreams is starting to become a reality! I have always loved to travel, meet new people, learn, and inspire others to do all three as well. When an opportunity arose that involved all of these (studying abroad my Junior year of High School), I knew I had to be a part of it. While abroad in Spain, I hope to gain knowledge of a wonderful culture, meet amazing people, learn another language, and gain self confidence. Throughout the 5 years I have been learning Spanish, I have fallen in love with the language. If possible, I also want to help teach English to the students and make language learning more interesting for them. And when it ends, I'll take it all home! When I return, I want to share my journey with others and inspire them to take that leap of faith to reach their goals. Even though leaving my home country will be tough, I believe that everyone needs to jump out of their comfort zone to experience the best parts of life. Thank you all so much for your generosity, and I admire your love for traveling and your belief that the world needs to experience the amazing things that come with it!
