Life in the U.S. / Thank You Thursdays

Thank You Thursday! – Juan from Colombia

Aspect Foundation’s inbox is flooded with notes from students expressing their gratitude for the experience they have had on student exchange. On Thursdays, we post one of these notes, sharing the “warm fuzzies” with all of you!

Below are a few sweet lines by Juan from Colombia who is currently studying in North Carolina!




I cannot believe I only have 4 more months here, I feel happy because I’ll be seeing my real family again, but sad at the same time for leaving a life that I built in just 6 months, it is a mix of lots of feelings.

I left my home to come to a new one, a new place that feels like home, I am so thankful and happy for this opportunity.

Thank you so much Aspect for all these memories I will always keep in my heart! This is something incredible!
