1. Finding Independence:
You call this place home. You know the bus stops, how to take a taxi, how to live independently. To actually live in a country, not only tour it and learning with hands on experience, has helped me recognize my positionality within a workplace, a community, and a society. -Kevin
2. Finding Comfort:
Learning how to get around independently on public transportation is a freeing feeling and a right of passage to living in this beautiful, crazy country. -Allie
3. Thinking about the Future:
Being here reinforced my desire to teach English in Spain. I learned how to teach the students more effectively! -Ben
