In the summer of 2015, I made the best decision of my life: work and live in Glacier National Park, Montana.
Every time someone tells me Psychology is easy, I tell them what Physics Nobel Prize Winner Murray Gell-Mann said: “Imagine how hard physics would be if electrons could think”.
The Ruta Quetzal is a trip taken yearly by hundreds of Latin American, Spanish, and other Spanish-speaking students. It started in 1979, when Miguel de la Quadra-Salcedo created a trip which would promote intercultural exchange between the youth of Spanish speaking countries.
I was only 14 years old when I lived abroad for the first time. I lived with a Canadian host family and attended a local high school for 2 months – from September to November. Our destination? Beautiful Victoria in Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
My parents had a very clear idea regarding the type of education they wanted for me: bilingual in Spanish and English. In the 1990s, not many Spanish schools offered this type of bilingual education. One of the few that did, BRAINS School in “La Moraleja” (Madrid), was the chosen one.
