Memories Forever Treasured
Castellano en Peru, Peru
My name is Sabrina Hanabaga and I am 20 years old. This past summer of 2011, I studied the Spanish language and culture in Peru. My experience abroad was a unique and precious opportunity to learn about my culture, study the Spanish language, and grasp a view of life outside of the United States. I traveled to many different cities and towns such as: Lima, Cajamarca, Chiclayo, Cusco, Urubamba, and Pisac. Machu Picchu was the most amazing historical site I had ever visited. When I set foot on that majestic mountain, I could feel the presence of a master piece, the richness of the culture as I envisioned the lifestyle of the Incas and their people. I had many first time experiences in Peru.
Overall, studying abroad in Peru is an experience that I have learned so much from, which has led me to grow as a person and develop new cultural and personal values. Also, there were many lessons I have learned, while abroad. Now I have a global perspective on people and their life, which I will continue to add to as I become a traveling nurse, providing healthcare to people all over the world. I am very grateful to have taken the opportunity to study abroad in Peru. Traveling is an entity that I value and will continue to do for the rest of my life. My memories from this experience will forever be treasured and ones that will never be forgotten.
