Far But Home

I decided to go as an exchange to mother Russia! I never imagined all that would happen to me during the exchange, sadness, happiness, hope, courage and new life lessons are what this trip would bring to me without even imagining that everything would unfold during a world pandemic. Strangers became my family, the quarantine in the dormitory made everyone close to each other, I was far away but home. I wanted to return as planned but it was impossible, with all the worries, it ended up being a very unique experience, unexpected but I could manage to find the joy and be happy. I stayed for one more semester, with new friends and new possibilities.I would also like to have the possibility to visit other cities in Russia while I have time or do other things that I was not able because of my economic restrictions, but now I also have the unplanned expenses, this is a difficult situation for me as the only person helping me is my mom. - Diana Fenozandry Mendoza, Bolivia
