Brian's Experience

  • “This exchange year made me grow up as a person. I found out how important people could become in just one year and it also showed me how different cultures can be around the world. Most of all, it made me mature in so many ways I can’t even describe. But for me, the best part was the relationships I got to make and the memories that I will always miss but never forget.”

    Brian M., Mexico
