I am from Mexico. The city where I live is called Obregón city in Sonora State (at north of the Mexican Republic). I attend to Obregón city campus. I came to John Abbott almost alone; I said this because the other two girls that are here too were only classmates for me, until now that I know them much more. I made friends here, so yes I do have friends studying at John Abbott. This is my first time studying abroad; I really appreciate the effort my parents did to send me here. Since I was little I always wanted to study in other place, out of Mexico, explore, know, learn about the world and other cultures make me feels so excited and happy.

I have thought in two careers, but I not really sure if I want to study that. The think that the two of them have in common is that in both you make researches. My first option is psychology; this one is because I like to understand the human behavior, help people when they need to. Last but not least, it is entomology. I truly like to investigate the insects. Indeed I like to investigate all sorts of things. Why am I not sure? Well, it is hard to choose one option, and another big factor is I need to see if there are good jobs for one of them. I don’t want to be a person who study something, but never work in what I studied. Those situations really frighten me out. It is important to say that I don’t see myself working on an office with a boss. I imagine me being my own boss, or working travelling around the world doing investigations, giving conferences, or having my own business.

My parents didn’t influence in my decision of studying abroad. Along time ago they have known that studying abroad was one of my dreams and aspirations. I hope and wish with all my heart that in another time of my life, maybe in college, go to another country to continue studying.

Right now, I don’t have any fears or feel stressed about studying at John Abbott College. On the contrary, I honestly am excited of being here. I feel confident of myself, because I know what I am capable for, also John Abbott gives you all the support you need if you are struggling. It´s very thrilling see the differences between Mexican schools and Canadian schools.

In career exploration, I would like to make tests to see if what other options I can consider, besides the two I already have and check if I am qualified for them. I wrote “check if I am qualified for them” because sometimes, but not often I doubt of myself, and I want to be really sure if the career I choose is the one for me. Contradicting, a nice motto for me is “attitude not aptitude”.

I would like to add that this is a huge opportunity to improve myself. An important thing of me is that am independent in some many ways (I mean I don’t depend if other people do it, to do it too), I have role models and take them as inspiration and motivation, but I create my own path, my own future.
