In the winter of 2018-2019, I traveled to the incredible country of Mexico with a friend to volunteer, travel, practice my Spanish, and experience life in this country so close to my own. Though Mexico is so relevant to life in the US, I was shocked to see how much variety there was in this country across all spectrums: natural beauty, history, people groups, and especially culture. I realized that not only is there a lot to learn about Mexico while traveling there, but there is also a lot to learn about my own culture through its perspective.
