I loved my experience in Spain. I made some great friends that helped me figure out how to live independently, and gave me some great life advice. Being the youngest one of the group, I was afraid at first, but after meeting everyone and finding my way around the city, I felt very comfortable with everything. I loved my Spanish classes as well, they were fun and interesting, as well as helped me grow my language skills. When I became familiar with the city and the people around me, I came out of my shell and am definitely a different person than I was when I left, which is absolutely a good thing.
