So I have started my next study abroad journey. This time I am in the magical city/state of Puebla, Mexico. And I will stay here for the next five months. My first week in Puebla has been full of amazing sights and new experiences. Puebla isn’t like anything I imagined. It’s a place where city and nature has come together. It’s vibrant and full of life and I am excited for the months ahead of me.
It’s interesting being here in Puebla, not only as an OU student but as an exchange student at the partner university UPAEP. It’s been fascinating having the perspective of an exchange student. I feel that this new perspective has given me insight on what it’s like for exchange students back home at OU.
Hopefully at the end of this journey I will be at least semi fluent in Spanish. I think that’s what I am most excited for; to learn a new language and embrace another culture.
I can only learn and gain insight from what Mexico has to offer.
