I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for the Global Health Electore trip to El Salvador, but I wanted to learn more Spanish and submerged myself into the culture, something I never got the opportunity to do. It was an amazing experience learning about the rich history of El Salvador and seeing how beautiful San Salvador was initially. Then we arrived to La Mora and all the families welcomed us with open arms and treated us like their own. It was a culture shock living amongst people that did not have the most but their joy and happiness was as if they were never lacking. This stuch out to me and I will continue to utilize this perspective throughout life. La Mora, Suchitoto and the city of El Salvador is rich in culture, beauty, and uniqueness. After spending about a month here I am excited I was able to come on this trip. I wan to thank my host family and all the host families from the bottom of my heart for letting me live, learn from them, and share laughs and smiles with them. This was truly an experience of a lifetime. Lastly, I want to thank CoCoDA and everyone who helped to make this experience possible. I am forever grateful. Until we meet again.
