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

Yes, I knew there were exchange programs to other countries.

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

No, I had this idea until the 3rd semester.

Have you ever lived or studied outside of Mexico before?

No, I had never had the opportunity to live in another country, I had only had the opportunity to travel.

What prompted or motivated you to study in another country?

Getting to know a new culture, learning a new language, from the beginning I had the idea that an exchange promotes personal growth.

Why did you decide to study in that country?

Because I had the option between Chile and China and the decision was in how big I wanted my challenge, I chose China because everything about this country calls my attention, it is totally different from what I have in my country, it is like another world and I am very passionate about it.

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

A lot of nerves and excitement at the same time, because people don't even speak English here, I knew it would be a big challenge.

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

The best!!! they are very kind and at all times are attentive to us, without a doubt the best people I've ever met.

What will you miss most about Mexico?

My family and food.

What about the Uni?


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

 Well I must say that all my days since I arrived in China are exciting, all my days are different, every day I learn something different and I never get bored because there is always something new to discover or learn. I have become very enthusiastic about the language, I love having Chinese classes, and every day I realize that I know how to say more things and understand so many others.

On the other hand, I have visited dream places such as Guilin, the Chinese wall, Shanghai, among others.

I have made lifelong friends who have taught me how to be a better person.

Undoubtedly the best experience of my life

And the hardest part?

I have not really had any difficult things happen to me during my stay in China, I always try to stay positive and take everything in stride because I know that everything I experience here is an experience, even if it is not pleasant I just laugh at the situation and let it go.

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

I have grown a lot as a person, I am full of experiences and all of them have made me grow. Professionally it will help me a lot, my English is much better than when I left, I have a lot of business vocabulary and now my long term goals have no borders, literally if I have come here to study I can work anywhere else in the world even if it has to be in Chinese!

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

Of course! from now on I try to convince them! they have to live this experience!
