When you entered Uni did you know there were international programs?
Yes, that was one of the main factors that influenced my decision to study at Uni.

When you entered your career, did you think you would go to live and study abroad?

I thought I would do well, but I never imagined I would be able to study abroad. I saw it as a distant dream.

Have you ever lived or studied outside of Mexico before?

 No, this was my first time.

What prompted or motivated you to study in another country?

I was driven to learn about another culture, to broaden my knowledge and to test myself. My family was my biggest motivation.

Why did you decide to study in that country?

I thought it was an interesting country and the school had an excellent academic plan.

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

I was excited and a little scared to get out of my comfort zone.

How have you been received at the university where you arrived?
The reception was very nice, they were attentive to us at all times.

What will you miss most about Mexico and UNI?

I missed the food from Mexico and from UNI I missed the system they use to evaluate us.

What is the most exciting thing you have experienced so far in this experience?
The most exciting thing was to get to know and explore a city I didn't know. Not being afraid to ask questions.

And the hardest part?

 The hardest part was being separated from my family and friends.

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

  I hope to continue expanding my knowledge and I want to continue adding achievements.
