Before I traveled to Spain, I was a normal Spanish student. I got "OK" grades and it was not really my biggest priority. I decided to go to get experience traveling abroad and it changed my life. They paired me with an exchange student that had SO much in common with me right from the start, making it easy to adapt to the new social settings. We also got to visit so many monumental places, places that are only imaginable in pictures, and they are experiences made real. I was there during the World Cup, and many activities were programmed into our schedule to surround us with pure Spanish culture. Before my trip with Yes in Spain, I was just a normal Spanish student. Now, I am acing my Spanish five class, I have tested into 300 level Spanish at Indiana University Bloomington, and I have gained life long experiences and friends that will last a lifetime. I am proud to say that Yes in Spain has changed my entire life course. I will now become a Spanish teacher.
