One of the best things that I have seen in Boston University since I arrived the first day is the vast variety of nationalities that you can find on campus. I am very happy to have friends from all over the world, from Latin Americans to Europeans and people from Asia and Africa. This is why I love Boston. Different from other cities, Boston has the advantage of being an international student hub where students arrive and have a broader image of the multiculturalist world in which we live today. This is a great advantage.
At the beginning I thought that I would only make friends with Latin Americans since we share plenty of cultural characteristics, and I was wrong. The first weeks I used to hang out just with Mexicans and Latin Americans. However, after one month of living in Boston I made friends from different continents such as Europe Asia, and Africa. I never thought that I could make friends those people because I was a little bit close-minded when I arrived in Boston. We might be different in some aspects, but we are pretty much the same as we all are students and want to have an amazing experience at MET International and thanks to MET International, we’ve all had the opportunity to meet each other. Now that the semester is officially finishing I know that you can make good and very valuable friendships from people from every single country of the world.
On the other hand, I am sad because my program is about to finish and my stay in Boston is coming to an end. Most of my friends are going back to their home countries and will continue their studies there. I hope to see them again in a not so distant future. I am the kind of person that likes to keep in touch with people I really like and I foster my friendships even at a distance. For example, I am still talking with a friend from Venezuela and a friend from Holland. I know that it will be difficult to see them again, but I know that our friendship will last forever.
It is difficult to say goodbye to all those people with whom I shared great moments during my stay at Boston University. Nevertheless, I know that all things come to an end and I just need to thank all those people who gave me their friendship. I will never forget them and I promise that one day I will see them once again.
