Testimonials

Sarai Cajiao (USA 2009 - 2010) When I got to New Mexico, I was excited to meet a new place , and ready to start my exchange year , in New Mexico there are many Spanish-speaking people , but time was passing , and with the motivation from both my family in Ecuador and my family in New Mexico and Xplorer , in 5 months and I could understand my family, and I got along well with my friends. It was a wonderful experience, those most grateful for this opportunity is to God and my parents, who supported my travel , since this is not a very easy decision to make . You get to know a different place, another language, another climate, another food, etc. . But such experiences make us stronger and more positive , to go ahead and meet our goals . Meeting my host family , was the best thing that could have happened to me this year, they are great people who I love dearly . My family loves to travel , so thanks to them I was able to meet other states, travel to Colorado, where I met one of the wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon, Arizona, and took a cruise to New York and Canada. These were undoubtedly the best experiences I've had. My host family always helped me immensely , and without expecting anything in return , I got all their support and love like a daughter . Now I'm back in my country, happy to have had my exchange year , and have had amazing experiences .
