Reflections on Leaving Madrid

August 23, 2015

As I am about to pack my bags and leave Madrid, I would like to share my experience and all the things that I have learned from Madrid, including my recommendations for potential students that may be getting ready for their departure with CEA.

Madrid is one of the most elegant cities with a rich culture that I felt immersed in. Time flew by, and before I had a chance to reflect on my thoughts, I am already preparing to go back home. People do not joke when they say that time truly flies and that is exactly why my biggest recommendation is to immerse yourself in a new environment as fast as possible. The sooner you familiarize yourself with a foreign city, the more chances you get to discover the hidden gems that it has to offer. I am so grateful that CEA has given me a chance to explore Madrid with a fantastic support system.
