High School Abroad in Argentina

I was extremely fortunate to receive the First Time Traveler scholarship from Greenheart travel. This scholarship enabled me to pursue a year studying abroad in Argentina. Greenheart in association with their partner in Argentina, EduQuality, made the experience unforgettable. In all honesty, I had no clue what to expect before beginning the program. A year away from my family in a foreign country was simply unfathomable. However, It has proven to be more valuable and enjoyable than I could ever begin to express. I encourage prospective travelers to take the leap, whether it be a trimester, a semester, or a whole year. A whole world of new incredible experiences awaits you.

A Cordial Welcome

When I first arrived to my family in Argentina, I was filled with anxiety and excitement.. Right off the bat, my host parents and sibilings made me feel apart of the family! The first weekend they had text all their family members and friends and invited them to a barbecue just to meet me! I felt extremely welcomed and was overjoyed from the pride me family had in having me as a foreign exchange student. With my fellow class mates, it was the same way, my brother had sent a group message to the class of about 20 inviting them to come to the park and to meet me and get a grasp on the life of person from the US. My foriegn exchange expirience was extremely fruitful and I'm grateful that this program placed me in a family that made me feel like I was home even away from home.
