“I couldn’t choose where I was going to be attending, but when I found out I was going to Michigan I was all excited and curious. Everyone was telling me that I was going to freeze here. I had been waiting so long for the day I was going to meet my host family. I was just imagining how many experiences I was going to live through while being here. My favorite experience in Michigan was when I joined the Cross Country team. It was such a challenge because I had never ran but I met a lot of amazing people and I had so much fun. Also, celebrating American holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving was a lot of fun, in Spain the only celebration we have during this time of year is reuniting with your family on New Years Eve.” –Lorena Merchan
