Alejandra Patiño’s Blog

Days before coming to this exchange I was totally scared about this new experience, how I was going to live alone? What if I get lost? What if we do not found someone friendly at college?And many other concerns that for sure my parent have as well in their heads. Nevertheless everything was easy, not only because it is a small and well organized city, but because people in Halifax are the friendliest people I ever meet. All the people I have the opportunity to meet during this exchange make this experience the greatest one. After receiving help from taxi drivers, bus drivers, estrangers in the streets, seller (basically everyone) our next concern was college, where once again we found that people were the most valuable. About the cultures, I found that Canada is more organize and everything works perfectly, but the joy and the relaxed environment I feel back home was one of the things I miss the most.

Clearly this experience is highly enriching in both my personal and the professional life. Having the opportunity to adapt to a whole new environment, living alone, being responsible about my actions, and knowing people from all around the world are the thing that in my opinion change, positively, the way I see thing now.
