Now I am sitting on the plane. I just watch Mexico disappear as the plane flew away. I am really going to miss Mexico. I do miss my family and I am ready to see them, but Mexico will always have a place in my heart.

I am so glad that I challenged myself and gained this experience. This trip was an incredible opportunity. I feel that I have grown not only as a person, but also as a social worker. I have always wanted to make a difference in someone’s life or the world, but before this trip, that dream was only limited to the U.S. This trip opened my eyes to numerous possibilities. I can’t wait to take this experience and use it to grow even more.

It has officially been a week since leaving Mexico and I still wake up some mornings and forgetting I’m in the U.S. I catch myself missing Mexico so much. I miss walking everywhere and I miss practicing the language. I am a little happy about having more of a variety of  food. I do admit I was getting burnt out from their food. I am happy though to be with my family. My next trip to Mexico I hope to bring them with me.  Now that I have challenged myself and explored, now I can’t wait to see where my next destination will be. I am so blessed to have had to opportunity and I want to continue to expand my horizon.
