El Salvador is a country of resilience, strength and love. The people of this country have taught me that life is not easy but that you have to always face adversity and keep your head up. The land is not only beautiful but the hearts of the Salvadorians are big and open to welcome those that want to learn. They do not shy away from their history but instead share how mistakes have been made and how they want to keep their story alive to keep themselves motivated for a better future. I thank the patients that allowed me to listen to their stories, be a part of their patient care and taught me something new everyday. I thank my host family for welcoming me into their home like if I was a family member and taking the time to get to me as we played cards at night. El Salvador is a rose that grew from concrete, and it’s roots are deep and it’s growth is limitless.
