When you entered Uni did you know there were international programs?

Yes, and I was very interested in it, it was one of the most important reasons for choosing to study at Uni.

Did you think you would go live and study abroad in your first semester?

It was always in my plans, I had it in mind and it was my main goal.

Have you ever lived or studied outside of Mexico before?


What prompted or motivated you to study in another country?

Knowing that there was so much more to the world than just what I saw and knew in my daily life, I wanted to open my mind and know as much as I could to know what my direction in life was.

Why did you decide to study in that country?

Because I wanted the exchange to give me as many experiences as possible, China was the ideal place because it was the most different from what I knew and I wanted to experience the opposite.

How did you feel when you arrived in the new country?

Thirst! It's my favorite word to describe what I felt ! thirsty to have more of everything, more new things, meet more people, know more places, learn more language, immerse myself more in the culture!

How have you been received at the university where you arrived?

Excellent ! From day one everyone was looking to help you without you asking for it and without expecting anything in return, incredible people who only seek your well being.

What will you miss most about Mexico?

Speak Spanish

What about the Uni?

The classes are more dynamic in Mexico we interact a lot with classmates and teachers and in China the classes are quieter and without much space for participation.

What is the most exciting thing you have experienced so far in this experience?

To be able to experience and be able to see how much I was learning day by day, and how fast the mind can work, all the new skills you acquire, how the way you think evolves without changing the way you are and who you are.

And the hardest part?

Feeling literally lost at certain times, not being able to ask for directions, not knowing what to eat because the menu is in Chinese, not being able to ask for what you need.

What do you expect as a person and as a professional from this program?

I hope to be able to put into practice everything I learned and to be able to share all the experiences and skills I gained with all the people around me because they made me grow a lot on a personal level.

And on a professional level I was able to discover the skills I had and the ones I still need to develop, with the right attitude, dedication and time dedicated to activities that take advantage of your personality and knowledge are things worth investing your time in.

Do you recommend these opportunities provided by Uni to your colleagues?

Absolutely! It is one of the most enriching experiences you can have in life and we should not miss this opportunity that Uni gives us because it is for our personal and professional benefit that in the long run will benefit our lives, our environment and fortunately, our country!
